Objavljen CIRR 71 – posebno izdanje
Objavljen je novi broj časopisa Croatian International Relations Review (Vol. 20 No. 71) - posebno izdanje posvećeno petoj godišnjici hrvatskog ulaska u NATO savez.
Više informacija o posebnom izdanju i časopisu općenito donosi uvodna riječ glavne urednice CIRR-a dr. sc. Senade Šelo Šabić:
This is the first special issue that the Croatian International Relations
Review (CIRR) publishes, conveniently falling into the 20th year of the
journal’s existence. A decision to publish a special issue was motivated
by a desire to mark another anniversary – that of the Croatian 5th year
of membership in NATO.
Croatia and Albania joined NATO in 2009 and remain the only two
countries – members of NATO – in the region five years after. With
the exception of Serbia, all other countries in the region, more or less,
express the desire to join NATO. The accession process, however, just
as in the case of the accession to the European Union, is wrought
with obstacles, both internally and externally. At the same time, NATO
faces numerous challenges, in Europe and beyond. These and related
themes are discussed in this issue.
A word about CIRR – we make significant efforts to strengthen the
journal – attract excellent scholarly articles and widen the journal’s
reading audience. To this end, a number of changes have been
introduced during the last two years. CIRR has an open-access
policy and full texts can be downloaded through the CIRR website ,
HRČAK – a portal of academic journals in Croatia or through the
De Gruyter website, the journal’s academic distributor.
As of recently, full and free access to all previous issues of
the journal is available at the CIRR and HRČAK websites.
CIRR is a member of COPE – Committee on Publication Ethics – and has
a strict anti-plagiarism policy.
We would like to thank NATO Public Diplomacy Division for financially
supporting the publication of the special issue and NATO Assistant
Secretary General for Public Diplomacy, Ambassador Kolinda Grabar-
Kitarović, for endorsing the idea of the special issue and writing the
