In 2013 the European Court of Human Rights received 1,600 complaints from Croatia, with the state having to pay out a total of 2.5 million kuna (340,000 EUR) in compensation for judgements made in favour of Croatian citizens. In the last two years the number of cases from Croatia is on the rise, with 1,600 taking the state to the court last year, and it looks like there will be more in 2014. In just the first 17 days the Strasbourg court had received 181 cases from Croatia.

The most common cases Croats were taking to the European Court of Human Rights were liberty deprivation, war crimes and housing issues.
