Zaključni dogodek ob prvem letu projekta EU4Me v Ljubljani

 V okviru projekta Učenje evropske raznolikosti: spoštovanje večkulturnosti, večjezičnosti, manjšin in migracij v EU (EU4Me) (vodja projekta izr. prof. dr. Damjan Lajh) smo v petek, 2. junija 2017 v Ljubljani organizirali zaključni dogodek ob prvem letu projekta. V Hiši Evropske unije smo se zbrali skupaj z več kot 80 najbolj aktivnimi učenkami in učenci pri projektu in njihovimi učitelji. Zbrane aktivne učence je nagovoril evropski poslanec dr. Igor Šoltes in spregovoril o različnih aktualnih EU temah, kot so Brexit, priložnosti v EU za mlade, pomen lokalno pridelane hrane in varstvo okolja. Mladi so imeli priložnost poizvedeti tudi o delu asistenta evropskega poslanca – obiskal nas je asistent evropskega poslanca Lojzeta Peterleta. V nadaljevanju so si učenke in učenci ogledali še interaktivno razstavo Doživi Evropo. Po kosilu smo obiskali in si ogledali Državni zbor RS, kjer nas je uvodoma nagovoril poslanec dr. László Göncz, predstavnik madžarske manjšine v Državnem zboru RS. Učenke, učenci in učitelji so si bili enotni, da je dogodek bil zelo zanimiv, poučen in zabaven.

Primerjalno raziskovanje interesnih skupin

 Center za politološke raziskave je med 30. 5. in 1.6. na Fakulteti za družbene vede organiziral dvodnevno delavnico v sklopu mednarodnega projekta Primerjalno raziskovanje interesnih skupin. Glavni cilj je bil doseči boljše razumevanje vsakodnevnega delovanja interesnih skupin v različnih nacionalnih okoljih z namenom razvoja primerjalnega in poglobljenega empiričnega znanja. Delavnica je združila raznolikost predstavitev in avtorjev iz Slovenije, Belgije, Nemčije,Nizozemske, Italije, Španije, Litve, Črne gore, Poljske, Švedske in Velike Britanije, ki so zagotovili velik potencial že zbranih podatkov med izvajanjem projekta (www.cigsurvey.eu).

Nova spoznanja o interesnem predstavništvu v okviru mnogoravenskega političnega sistema EU

Danica Fink-Hafner, Mitja Hafner-Fink in Meta Novak so v soavtorstvu z Rainerjem Eisingom, Danielom Raschem in Patrycjo Rozbicko objavili članek »Who says what to whom? Alignments and arguments in EU policy-making« v prestižni mednarodni znanstveni reviji West European Politics.

 
Objava je rezultat sodelovanja v mednarodnem projektu INTEREURO Evropske znanstvene fundacije, ki ga je sofinancirala tudi Slovenska raziskovalna agencija (www.intereuro.eu).
 
Raziskava prinaša nova spoznanja o interesnem predstavništvu v okviru mnogoravenskega političnega sistema EU. V članku so predstavljene ugotovitve analize lobističnih strategij skoraj  2900 nacionalnih interesnih organizacij iz petih držav članic  (Nemčije, Nizozemske Slovenije, Švedske in Združenega kraljestva) v primerih 20 predlogov EU direktiv. Ugotovitve kažejo, da so nekatera splošna predvidevanja interesno-skupinskega obnašanja pretirana. Obnašanje interesnih skupin v okviru mnogoravenskega sistema EU zagotavlja štiri glavne poteke interesnega predstavništva.

The Early National Elections in Slovenia


by Tomaž Deželan

Slovenian citizens went to the polls to elect their representatives in the National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia, after the President of the Republic, Danilo Türk, had signed an order dissolving the Assembly on 21 October 2011. The Republic’s first snap elections were called after a vote of no confidence on 20 September had brought down the left-wing government led by Borut Pahor (Social Democrats). The main reason for this vote, apart from scattered corruption cases throughout the main government parties, was that a lack of coordination, both among the member parties and with opposition parties and other social partners, had rendered the governing coalition unable to advance much needed reforms, and naturally fuelled public resentment.

Several long-term implications may arise from the election results and post-festum reactions. First, the balance of power on the left side of the ideological continuum has been completely reorganized, since the formerly dominant LDS has dropped out of the parliament, along with Zares, and given way to Janković’s new dominance, shared with the significantly weakened SD. Second, although ostensibly from the center,[4] Virant has proved to be a new force challenging the dominance of Janša’s SDS on the right wing. Third, despite introducing two significant new political actors into the field, the new National Assembly leaves the balance of power between the poles virtually unchanged, and keeps up the usual shenanigans that form part of Slovenia’s political folklore. However, probably the most profound result of the elections is the rise of nationalism that was triggered by an anonymous author on the SDS’s official website. The writer accused Janković of coercing the immigrant population to vote for him by allegedly spreading the belief that a right-wing victory would cost them their citizenship (Siol, 2011). Janković, the son of a Serb father and a Slovenian mother who has lived in Slovenia from early childhood, gained significant support from the immigrant population, which the anonymous author called “voters in sweat suits”. The publication of this “analysis” divided the population and spurred some protests, but nevertheless highlighted the xenophobic and ethnic nationalist tendencies smoldering in parts of Slovenian society, including the political elite (see Deželan, 2011). In a word, the elections that were supposed to close the chapter of stalemate and failed political management during the economic crisis have opened a new chapter in the country’s shameful history of ethnic nationalism.
