Socialist Workers' Party of Croatia (Croatian: Socijalistička radnička partija Hrvatske or SRP) is a Communist Croatian political party. It is often considered to be the leftmost of all registered parties in Croatian politics.
The Party emphasizes the importance of worker self-management and participatory democracy. Socialist Labour Party supports new social movements; party delegates have supported Zagreb Pride and the union protests.
The youth section of SRP is called Young Socialists (Croatia).
The official paper is called Croatian: Socijalizam danas (Socialism Today).
The Party was formed in 1997 by a group of leftists gathered around the magazine called Hrvatska ljevica (Croatian Left) and its chief editor Stipe Šuvar. SRP filled a hole on the Croatian political left after the Social Democratic Union had lost influence and members and the Social Democratic Action moved more to the center.
Shortly after, a minority of members left to form Socialist Party of Croatia - Left Alternative, mostly due to personal disputes. The activist core, including the youth wing and the entire editorial board of Hrvatska ljevica (which worked beside the late Stipe Šuvar) is still a part of the SRP.
On last local elections in 2005, SRP formed a joint list with Social Democratic Union, New Alternative Party - Green Movement, Green Left of Croatia and Green Party but did not win any seats in local or regional assemblies, although it came close in several cities such as Šibenik, Rijeka and Pula).
Foreign relations 
The Party attended several International Communist Seminars hosted by the Workers' Party of Belgium and International Conference of Communist & Workers' Parties. It also contains a group called Workers' Struggle (Radnička borba) that is close to the reunified Fourth International.
