Slavenka Drakulić has just published an article Croatia: The Virus, the Earthquake and the Bio-Economy of Tourism as part of a larger Debates on Europe series.
In Croatia, an allegedly independent group of experts have pulled the strings in the handling of the coronavirus pandemic. But this crisis management has in fact been deeply political, writes journalist and novelist Slavenka Drakulić. Dependent on tourism, EU’s youngest member state plays a risky game where political power and economy stand against the lives of the most vulnerable. In the end the future of democracy could be at stake.
