Iz recenzija

This collective book presents an impressive multidisciplinary panorama of Mediterranean island societies with a focus on the Croatian islands and the Adriatic Sea. It combines contributions from researchers in disciplines ranging from anthropology to education sciences, to studies on tourism and communication… Overall, this set of studies offers a variety of perspectives on contemporary island societies, which allow the contemporary destiny of these societies to be approached in a nuanced way, taking into account not only the political action at different scales (local, national, regional or intergovernmental), but also the economic and cultural dynamics that today structures the practices and the representations of the groups that are involved.

Cyril Isnart, PhD, Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique

As a result of the scientific co-operation between VERN’ University of Applied Sciences and the Institute of Social Sciences Ivo Pilar a conference was organized on the beautiful yet remote Croatian island of Vis at VERN’ Island School, focussing on the a variety of issues facing the Mediterranean sea and the Adriatic islands in a trans-national and global context… I would like to congratulate my colleagues in Zagreb for their outstanding achievement in having succeeded in convening a wide-ranging group of specialists from within Croatia as well as outside with widely differing specialisations to all sit round a conference table on the island of Vis in order to highlight the specific (or otherwise) problems insular communities are facing in former and in this recent period of globalisation.
