This  presentation  focuses  on  football  supporters  in  Croatia.   It  begins  with  an  explanation  of  recent  changes  in  Croatian   society  and  then  provides  an  overview  of  changes  in  modern   football  (soccer).  After  explaining  the  theoretical  and   methodological  framework  used  in  past  research  and   outlining  the  theory  and  methods  used  by  Perasović  and  his   colleagues,  there  is  a  discussion  of  findings  in  their  ongoing   ethnographic  study  of  youth,  politics  and  civic  engagement   in  contemporary  Croatia. |  Flyer
