Description
The course presents the formation and development of the general idea of the rights of citizens and human rights and respective legal institutions in the European context and the neighbouring Croatian environment and Croatia itself, as part of the development of modern legal ideas in the formative period and the main features of later development. The basic concepts of analysis (human rights, rights of citizens, modernisation, center and periphery) are analysed, as well as general ideological and institutional determinants important for understanding rights of citizens, in particular the rule of law, Rechtstaat and judicial independence. The course-material is presented deductively by first showing the formation and characteristics of development in the European center (especially in England, France and Germany as well as in other European countries), then in the closest Croatian environment that influenced development in Croatia (Austria and Hungary) and then in Croatia itself. The largest part of the course is dedicated to presentation of the individual rights of citizens and related institutions that are presented according to the same deductive scheme: the right of domicile (Heimatrecht) and citizenship; right of suffrage; freedom of the press and jury trial; the right to public assembly, the right to petition and the right to association; equality of religions, and finally an overview of the development of the rights of citizens in Croatia in the context of the Rechtstaat and the rule of law from the formative period in the 19th century to the contemporary period.
