Hungary and the extent of its connection with its homeland. The current situation of the
minority was analyzed by taking into account the legal-political situation which influences
the welfare-social conditions and the range of cultural activities. Text refers to the most
important legal documents sanctioning the position of national minorities in Hungary.
It also presents a legal-institutional system established by the Republic of Croatia, introduced
in order to protect national minorities, and to support and strengthen cooperation
with them. In addition, the most important issues associated with the community which
functions outside of Croatian borders were indicated.
