The Ifo Institute received a request from the Croatian Statehood Foundation to develop an economic and social reform programme for Croatia in 2015.

After several months of research, the study put forth a scientifically sound programme on how Croatia’s very serious structural problems can be overcome, condensed into 13 papers dealing in detail with the key issues addressed by the programme. They were published as a book in January 2016.
