The aim of this paper is to investigate how brownfield redevelopment, i.e., the redevelopment of derelict, abandoned or underused sites, where a real or perceived problem of contamination exists, might be approached in Croatia. Crucial in such activities is the involvement of many stakeholders, belonging to various institutional arenas, both formal and informal, and dispersed across various government levels. Such locations have emerged in Croatia due to transition and post-war problems, and poor management in state-owned as well as privatised enterprises. The presence of such industrial sites has various adverse effects not only on the environment but also on the economic and social development of the regions and localities. Due to the complexity of initiating brownfield redevelopment processes and specific problems in Croatia, economic development initiatives are directed towards attracting greenfield investments and creating new industrial and entrepreneurial or business zones. Brownfield redevelopment is an issue through which the impacts of existing development policies in Croatia can be analysed. The paper concludes with the identification of possibilities for new modes of governance and participatory initiatives for brownfield redevelopment in Croatia.
