According to the Nations in transit and HDI measurements, Slovenia is

regarded as a democratic country yet with some measurements it can also

be found lower down the scale (problems with corruption). Although such

measurements are not completely accurate, most of them rank Slovenia

among the most successful countries in democratic transition. Since gaining

independence in 1991, Slovenia has completely put in place all democratic

institutions of state organisation, mostly undergone major capital

rearrangements (privatisation, liberalisation, denationalisation) and

achieved both of the starting objectives of new international involvement

together with fulfilment of their criteria (entering the EU and NATO), while

on 1 January 2007 has taken on the common European currency as the first

country among the former socialist countries. Slovenia was also the first

former socialist country that successfully led the EU in first half of 2008.

Authors were motivated to write this book by the recognition that these

days there are more calls for research to examine the actual behaviour of

democratic institutions of state regulation, to ascertain their relationship

and openness to citizens and their initiatives and check the possibilities of

civil society forming policies. The book presents Slovenia’s constitutional

regulation, as well as the organisation and actions of Slovenian authority.

The description of the country’s democratic development highlights the

democratic deficits and considers the possibilities of future development.
