Public Participation in Fiscal Policy and Budget Processes in Croatia
Katarina Ott and Mihaela Bronic
Croatia adopted a series of reforms that are designed to promote transparency and participation in fiscal policy/budgets. The push to adopt that new institutional procedures came from the EU and the OGP. Thus, the strongest support to adopt new institutions came from international organizations. There has been extensive formal and legal adoption of institutions and programs.
However, one consequence of the implementation of these reforms is that there is very limited active support from government officials to bring them to life. This draws attention to the difference between a set of institutions imposed by outside actors and those institutions that are developed more strongly from within the country.
