Abstract

This paper discusses the thorny path of Slovenia from a communist state to a constitutional liberal democracy, based on the rule of law and a genuine respect of human rights. It explains why Slovenia, even 25 years after its independence, is only a half-built, failing democracy and discusses the ways in which this might be changed in the near future.

Keywords: Slovenia, Rule of Law, Democracy, Constitutionalism, Crisis, European Union
