При засилен интерес от страна на хърватската и българска академична общност премина двудневната международна научна конференция „Хървати и българи. Дипломация, политика, култура и наука“ в гр. Загреб на 28–30 септември 2022 г. Научният форум бе посветен на две важни годишнини – 25-годиини от установяването на научното сътрудничество между Българската академия на науките и Хърватската академия на науките и изкуствата и 30-години от установяването на  дипломатическите отношения между Република България и Република Хърватия.

В програмата на конференцията бе застъпена многообразна проблематика, обхващаща актуални въпроси из областта на историята, културата, дипломацията и литературознанието. Обособени бяха четири отделни панела, оформени на тематичен и хронологически принцип.

Посланикът на Република България в Загреб Генка Георгиева запозна аудиторията с ролята на България в международното признаване на независимостта на Хърватия  след отделянето на страната от Югославия през 1992 г. Нейният доклад бе допълнен от изследването на д-р Бисер Банчев от ИБЦТ при БАН, в което се използват нови архивни материали от Министерството на външните работи по същата тема.

Една от целите на научния форум бе да се хвърли повече светлина върху досегашните проучвания за характера, типологията и развитието на контактите между хървати и българи през различни исторически периоди, с акцент върху времето на модернизационните процеси и формирането на гражданско общество (XIX и XX век).
