Sažetak
As a traditionally emigration country, with high number of labour and political emigrants to overseas and western European countries Croatia is expected to experience considerable changes in the migration trends. Such a development will presumably include a reduction in emigration flows and gradual increase in immigration and transit flows after Croatia's accession to the EU. Homeland war (1991-1995) introduced new types of migrants in the area such as refugees or displaced population while recent processes of the EU accession open the space for labour immigration to Croatia and broader circular, transit and illegal migrations. Neighboring Central East European and South East European countries recorded similar migration trends after they joined the EU. These changes of migration trends along with the anticipated immigration surplus require the adjusting of Croatian migration policies to EU standards. Furthermore, they also urge the implementation of social measures in order to prepare Croatian citizens for increasing number of immigrants as a precondition for broader public acceptance of cultural and ethnic diversities, especially insisting upon the multiple benefits of immigration flows for Croatian society. Higher immigration will be most probably initiated by expected positive economic expansion in Croatia but also sculptured by the extent of openness or closeness of receiving society towards new immigration groups with all the cultural varieties they can offer.
