Abstract:

This article examines the social and political influence of veterans of the Croatian War of Independence in present-day Croatia. In 1997, the unique Ministry of Veterans was established in the young country. The Law on Croatian Veterans was passed which provides ex-militaries with a number of privileges, but causes dissatisfaction among a large part of society. The veterans founded a number of associations, and their ever-increasing number made them an indispensable factor in Croatian political life
