A Word from the Director
direktor
I am about to introduce to you the scholars, the employees, and the activities of the Institute of Social Sciences Ivo Pilar. To supervise and lead such an institution and such an exceptional team is not just a job but a rare honor and a source of personal satisfaction. We have founded this Institute ourselves because we love to explore, to compare the results of scientific research and to exchange scientific information with anybody anywhere. Our motto is Through research to facts, and so far we have conducted a lot of research and published a large number of books, studies, and reports. From an institution with just a few Doctors and Masters we have grown to be an Institute of 118 scholars. Most of them started their careers within the Institute itself as scientific novices.
Our research is up-to-date, multi-disciplinary, and applicable. We are a reliable partner always accomplishing our task at the highest level of quality. Read our publications and see for yourself. Our journal "Društvena istraživanja" (Social Research) has the status of an international scientific publication and many of our books and studies have won recognition and awards. We have organized and participated in numerous national and international gatherings. We lecture at institutions of higher learning using the results of our research thus ideally combining research and teaching. When we are done with our work, we like to celebrate because success at the workplace fills us with happiness and satisfaction. Please join us, and get to know us. Our partners have learned that only on the basis of research and fact-finding can one explain the past and predict the future.

Who was Ivo Pilar

pilar-stoji Dr. Ivo Pilar (b. 19 June 1874, Zagreb; d. 3 September 1933)
A respected attorney in Sarajevo, Tuzla, and Zagreb; politician, publicist, sociologist, and the father of Croatian geopolitical science.
Having studied law in Vienna and Paris, Pilar practiced law in Sarajevo, Tuzla, and Zagreb until his unexplained and questionable “suicide” in 1933. He was the founder of the “Croatian National Union” for Bosnia and Herzegovina (1910). During the First World War he advocated retaining the integrity of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, including the Croatian lands and Bosnia and Herzegovina. After the war he was an opponent of the Greater-Serbian regime, and supported the idea of federalization of Yugoslavia.
Pilar also studied the sources of Bogumilism (Bogumilism as a Religious, Historical, and Socio-Political Problem, Zagreb, 1927). He wrote philosophic treatises, and was one of the founders of the Croatian Moderna movement in visual arts. In the article entitled “The Secession” in the Vijenac (1898), he pleaded for artistic freedom, democratization of the arts, and a place for new art techniques (poster art, reproductive arts).
Pilar was the author of the first political geography of Croatian lands (1918). In his main work, Die Südslavische Frage (The Yugoslav Question) which was published under the pseudonym of L. von Südland in Vienna in 1918 (Croatian translation by F. Pucek, 1943), he proposed unification of Croatian lands, and rejected state union with Serbia (from Hrvatski leksikon, II, Zagreb: Naklada leksikon, 1997).
