Chapter Summary

This chapter is both an outcome and recognition of the reassurance Božidar Bakotić gave the author at the critical point when he was treading on the virgin land of church and state scholarship in Croatia. Major participants of church and state relations in Croatia entertain perspectives that are barely articulated, analysed even less in Croatian scholarship, and usually distorted in the Croatian media, but which are nonetheless often conflicting. The relationship between other Catholic theological schools and Croatian state universities is analysed only incidentally. Policy-oriented jurisprudence (POJ) requires a policy analyst to postulate explicitly the basic public order goals of their inquiry. The participation of a theological school of a religious community in a Croatian state university should conform primarily to the following provisions of the Croatian Constitution of 1990. The chapter outlines tendencies in past decisions towards or against the basic public order goals postulated and public policies clarified.

Keywords: Božidar Bakotić; Catholic theological schools; Croatian universities; policy-oriented jurisprudence (POJ)
