The Compendium community commemorates Biserka Cvjetičanin
With great sadness we have to announce the death of cultural policy expert Biserka Cvjetičanin, an Emeritus Research Adviser, and long-term Head of the Department for Culture and Communication at the Institute for Development (1985-2000) and International Relations (IRMO), Zagreb, Croatia.
On top of that, she took on the position of Deputy Minister of Culture of the Republic of Croatia from 2000 until 2004. During this time, she made a significant contribution to the development of Croatian cultural policy and to the introduction of democratic standards in decision-making. In addition to that, she made a great effort to position the Croatian cultural sector on the international scale.
Biserka was a great inspiration to the cultural policy community as well as the Compendium community. We will remember her for the outstanding contributions she made. May she rest in peace.
