Danica Fink-Hafner, Mitja Hafner-Fink and Meta Novak from Faculty of social Sciences, University of Ljubljana have in collaboration with colleagues from Germany and Great Britain analysed 2900 national interest groups from five countries (Germany, Netherlands, Slovenia, Sweden and Great Britain). Their research question has been why and how interest groups decide where and how they will try to influence the decision making. The analysis has shown that participation of interest groups in public consultation is dependent on coalitions and arguments in public policy debates.

Democracy and Alternative Modes of Governance

Special issue on Democracy and Alternative Modes of Governance edited by Danica Fink Hafner focuses on several current modes of governance which critically co-determine the nature and democratic aspects of governance in Slovenia. More precisely, from a comparative perspective, the authors analyse empirical modes as they have been evolving in Slovenia since the country's transition to a democracy (1990-2017). The articles present theoretical sub-framing relevant to specific aspects of governance; they analyse the empirical dynamics of each particular type of governance studied and evaluate them. Two democratic values are used as the main assessment criteria: representation and accountability. An analysis of empirical governance takes into account the dynamics of each of the particular mode of governance and identifies the trends in their empirical functioning in Slovenia since its transition to a democratic political system.
