Danijela Gavrilović, a member of the Serbian Invent team, recently published an article titled “A Comparative Analysis of Religiosity in Croatia and Serbia,” in Sociologija.

In her research, Gavrilović explores various dimensions of religiosity, including denomination, self-declared religiosity, and religious practices, among the citizens of Croatia and Serbia. Utilizing data from empirical studies conducted over the past fifteen years, such as EVS 2008, 2017, and INVENT 2021, she examines the trends and variations in the levels and forms of religiosity in these two countries.

Gavrilović’s analyses reveal that Croatia is moving towards a “European model” characterized by a significant number of secularized individuals and “spiritual” believers. However, there is also a noticeable counter-movement marked by an increase in religious practices. In contrast, Serbia exhibits a growth in church religiosity, coupled with a consistently high level of religious identification, albeit without a corresponding increase in religious practices.
