About the Journal


The Croatian Yearbook of European Law and Policy is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal specialising in EU law and policy. It seeks to advance academic scholarship and postgraduate education, develop European and regional academic networking, create professional opportunities for law academics, and promote academic reflection on European law and European values. The specific angle of the Yearbook aims to be critical, realistic and multidisciplinary. The editors recognise that significant answers to legal questions can be found only in a wider political, economic and social context. The editors welcome contributions on a wide range of European topics.
