Đanić Čeko extensively analyses and discusses historical development of the appeal as a legal institute within the administrative dispute procedures in Croatia from the 19th to the late 20th century. D. Malik writes about the evolution of international relations in Africa and the changes of power balance before, during and after the crisis caused by the construction of the Renaissance Dam on the Blue Nile in Ethiopia. A. Lasica and V. Raos, using interpretation frames as an analytical tool, discuss the issue of the status of Catalonia within Spain and the influence of this question on Spanish political scenery, focusing especially on the content of the pre-election debates in the late 2019 and subsequent results of the parliamentary elections.
