The Croatian Constitution determines the use of language in the public sphere. According to the Law on Croatian Radio-Television (2010, amended 2012), the HRT (Croatian Radio-Television) fosters the use of the Croatian language and Latin alphabet in radio and television programmes and promotes creativity in the dialects of the Croatian language. Similar provisions bind all other radio and television activities. The use of the Croatian language is not obligatory when addressing the members of national minorities, according to the Constitutional Law on Rights of National Minorities (2002, amended 2010 and 2011).
The Law on the Use of Language and Script of National Minorities in the Republic of Croatia and the Law on Education in the Language and Script of National Minorities were enacted in 2000.
The Law on Electronic Media established the Fund for the Promotion of Pluralism and Diversity of Electronic Media that is implemented by the Agency for Electronic Media (AEM). The Fund supports programmes that are also oriented to safeguarding of the languages of national minorities and/or are produced entirely in the language of persons belonging to a national minority (up to 30%), as stipulated in the Rulebook of the Fund.
