This study provides an analysis of the effects of European integration in the development of civil society projects on non-formal citizenship education in Croatia. A conceptualisation of the topic and the background information on the Country are presented, and a database of projects created (spanning from 2007 to 2015), together with several in-depth interviews with experts on the field. The outcome of the project suggests that the impact, while largely positive and significant in the projects (from legal, institutional and financial support), seems to be temporary. After the country accession to the European Union the lack of institutional pressure (accession’s conditionality) leads ultimately to a lack in funding support and the progressive disappearance of the civil society structure created in the accession period.
