Local Government Reform in Slovenia. From socialist self-management to local self-government

Part of the Urban Research International book series (URI, volume 2)


Over the last ten years, all transition countries have faced the problem of creating a new system of local government. In this respect, Slovenia is no exception, and the principle of local government was one of the basic principles of the new system, first recorded in the Declaration of Independence of Slovenia, and later in the Constitution of the new country. This represented the starting point and constitutional framework for Slovenia’s statehood, and as was the case with other countries, it relied on the development and tradition of local government.
