Abstract

In the process of harmonisation of the Croatian legal system to the standards and principles of the acquis communautaire, the field of equal opportunities or gender equality has attracted a great deal of attention. Achieving de facto gender equality at all levels of social and political life, as well as acting de iure in the direction of refining and creating new solutions within the existing legislation, represents a high challenge for legal experts. The harmonisation process raises a dilemma as to whether the modifications which have been made are sufficient and of a good nomotechnical quality, and whether the whole process in this area can be regarded completed at this stage.
