Students’ Protests in Zagreb – June 1968

The Yugoslav experiment from the beginning of the second half of the twentieth century achieved excellent starting results, mostly due to international circumstances like the strategic relations with both the East and the West. Political and economic decisions such as the focus on consumer goods contributed as well. However, incomplete implementation of the theory in practice resulted in the stagnation of economic progress and the political crisis at the beginning of the 1960s, which prompted the ruling establishment to implement reforms. While strikes and protests were already present before 1968, the year saw Yugoslav students join their colleagues from around the world and organize demonstrations demanding a return to the country’s fundamental values. In this text, the author presents a historical overview of the happenings and tries to understand the reasons for the June 1968 student protests in Zagreb with the help of certain theories on collective agency.
