Where does Slovenia stand at 30? On the occasion of its 30th independence anniversary as well as its upcoming EU Council Presidency that will shift Europe’s attention to Ljubljana in the second half of 2021, we take a closer look at Slovenia’s development since independence. Scrutinized are both areas of continuous development as well as moments of rupture in its three decade-long history. This special issue on Slovenia offers not only a comprehensive analysis and stock-taking of its situation in terms of its economy, politics and media, but also reveals lines of conflict within the country’s politics and society, which are reflected up to some degree in the different authors’ contributions.
The papers were first presented in an online symposium on 17 June 2021, which you can access on our website.Weiterführende Informationen unter: http://sogde.org/de/publikationen/southeast-europe-in-focus/
