Globalization processes create new organizational, economic and many other changes within society. There are many positive and neg­ative social effects, and globalization is treated as an important part of the new world order and as a way of adapting and promoting new social val­ues. It is increasingly turning into a new concept within the action of social relations as it encourages the opening of a new era of development. Under the influence of globalization, new directions of economic development in Croatia have been opened and this is an important scientific issue. There are numerous benefits of globalization and differences in speed and approach have often been driven by regional trends, policy opportunities and econom­ic factors. Croatia has a continuous and constant development of globali­zation parameters measured according to the KOF globalization index with occasional turbulent periods that resulted in short-term declines in correla­tions. The Covid-19 pandemic has turned into a major disaster for the glob­al economy and it is clear that the further development of global relations will take some new dimensions. This paper aims to establish the correlation between the globalization effects and related integration processes in the world with the detection of the situation in the Republic of Croatia. The sci­entific contribution is manifested through knowledge of the laws that govern globalization processes and inclusive forms of their further development.
