Small States, Big Challenges
Danica Fink Hafner, Kristen Ringdal, Sabrina P. Ramet (eds.)

This comparison of two small European states, Slovenia and Norway, will illuminate similarities that can be traced back to their status as small countries and also show how their regional and historical contexts are visible in different approaches to domestic and international politics. Part one of the book includes chapters on democratic cultures, political parties, national identities, and the media. The second part of the book includes a comparison of gender equality and of Church-State relations. Part three covers economic developments and environmental policies and the final part includes chapters on Norway and Slovenia’s different relationships to the EU and foreign policy. Primerjava dveh majhnih držav, Slovenije in Norveške, razkriva podobnosti, ki so značilne za majhne države pa tudi to, kako se njune regionalne in zgodovinske posebnosti izražajo v različnih pristopih v domači in zunanji politiki. Prvi del knjige vsebuje poglavja o demokratični kulturi, političnih strankah, nacionalnih identitetah in medijih. Drugi del knjige vsebuje primerjavo enakosti spolov in razmerij med cerkvijo in državo. Tretji del zajema gospodarski razvoj in okoljske politke, zadnji del pa poglavja o različnih razmerjih Norveške in Slovenije do EU in o njunih zunanjih politikah.
