Leadership and Political Officials. The seven political parties in Slovenia support ideologies ranging from the far right to the center-left.
In the parliamentary elections a centrist alliance of three parties gained the majority. President Milan Kucan was elected for a second term in , and Janez Drnovsek has served as prime minister since the first elections were held in Social Problems and Control.
Important social problems and issues include the country's transition to a free market economy, an aging population the average age for men is thirty-five, for women, thirty-eight , creating jobs for an educated population, and coping with the increasing number of migrant workers and refugees.
The crime rate is low but there has been a rise in organized and economic crime since Slovenia's independence and change to privatization.
Money laundering is a particularly increasing problem. Slovenia's location between Italy, Austria, and Hungary puts it in the middle of international money-laundering schemes.
The Slovene government is actively fighting the resulting problems. Foundry workers pouring molten metal into molds. While women comprise 45 percent of the workforce, they are largely confined to the welfare, public services, and hospitality fields.
Slovenia requires seven months of military service for all males at age eighteen. As of , the country had an army of 9, active duty soldiers as well as a reserve force.
Division of Labor by Gender. In Slovenia women comprise 45 percent of the overall workforce and more than 60 percent of the workforce in the agricultural sector.
In addition, primary school teachers are almost exclusively women. Industrialization and education have dramatically changed women's roles in the workplace, but aspects of Slovenia's traditionally patriarchal society still persist.
Women work primarily in three fields: The Relative Status Women and Men. Although women were granted complete civil and political rights after World War II, feminist groups state that industrialization has not eradicated the traditional patriarchy but has only created a situation where women are exploited.
Women are often treated as sex objects and are still expected to take care of all domestic matters even if they work full-time outside the home.
Despite years of socialism, Slovenian society is still oriented around the extended family. Rights and duties are more rigorously defined by family relationships than in the West.
Although the average age for a first marriage has increased, marriage is considered important for maintaining and strengthening family bonds.
Religious and cultural influences help keep the divorce rate low. In urban areas, the domestic unit is typically married adults and their children, if they have any, and sometimes older relatives.
In rural areas, extended families—often larger than those found in cities—live together or share property. Relatives who are unable to care for themselves usually reside with family members.
Before the twentieth century, family-based organizations called zadruga held property and farmed land in common.
Both formal and customary law determined the obligations and rights of zadruga members. Child Rearing and Education. Education is mandatory and free until age fifteen.
After this, students can choose a school that is more specialized if they wish to continue education. Most of the population has some basic education; another 42 percent have secondary schooling past age fifteen at a high school; and approximately 9 percent receive higher, university education.
There is a national, standardized curriculum. Competition for university places is strong. For Slovenes over ten years old, the literacy rate is placed at 99 percent.
Around 36 percent of the people receive postsecondary or higher levels of education. There are thirty institutions of higher learning but only two universities, the University of Ljubljana, founded in , and the University of Maribor.
Admittance to the universities is competitive but there are numerous schools that offer professional degrees. It is also possible to obtain a two-year "first stage" degree, equivalent to an associate degree, at the universities.
A bridge leading to a Baroque-style church in Ljubljana. The majority of Slovenes, approximately 71 percent, identify themselves as Roman Catholic; Roman Catholicism has undoubtedly influenced Slovene culture more than any other religious belief.
Protestantism gained a strong position during the Reformation in the s but later saw its numbers of practitioners diminish. Eastern Orthodox Christians comprise 2.
Most of the Protestants belong to the Lutheran church in Murska Sobota. There was once a small Jewish population in Slovenia but Jews were banished from the area in the fifteenth century.
Although the ruins of a synagogue can still be seen in Maribor, there is no longer an active Jewish temple anywhere in Slovenia today.
The rabbi of Zagreb, Croatia, occasionally holds services for the tiny Jewish community that lives in Ljubljana.
Rituals and Holy Places. There are several churches that are considered pilgrimage sites and places of spiritual renewal. In Brezje, a basilica dedicated to Saint Vid was first established in the s.
At the center of this church is a chapel dedicated to the Virgin Mary, with paintings by Leopold Layer. The Gothic church of Ptujska Gora, located on top of a mountain, was erected at the end of the fourteenth century and is famous for its beautiful altar.
Another pilgrimage church is located at Sveta Gora in the foothills of the Alps. The feast days of the Virgin Mary are the central pilgrimage days for all three churches.
There are two monasteries, Sticna Monastery and Pleterje Carthusian Monastery, which are open to visitors who often come not only for spiritual reflection but also to purchase the herbal remedies for which the monks are famous.
Health care is provided by the government for all of Slovenia's citizens. Life expectancy has increased and is almost at western European levels: The birthrate is low, under 10 per 1, people, and infant mortality is 5.
Support for the Arts. There is generally a strong interest in supporting the arts in Slovenia and enthusiastic patronage of cultural events.
Under the Yugoslav socialist government, arts and culture received state support. As an independent nation, Slovenia is seeking to maintain the same level of support for the arts, although privatization is changing the way institutions and artists are funded.
Literature has always been enthusiastically supported in Slovenia, and with the country's high literacy rate, this interest continues to grow.
The earliest written texts in Slovene, which were religious, date from around C. The first published book in Slovene appeared in , and in a Slovene grammar text and Bible were published.
Until the late eighteenth century, however, almost all books published in Slovenia were in Latin or German. Slovenian literature flourished in the early s during the Romantic period and began to develop an identity.
In the second half of the nineteenth century, Fran Levstik published his interpretation of oral Slovene folktales, and in Josip Juri published the first long novel completely in Slovene, entitled The Tenth Brother.
Slovenian literature immediately before and after World War II was heavily influenced by socialist realism and the struggles of the war period.
Various other literary styles, such as symbolism and existentialism, have influenced Slovene writers since the s. Slovenia has an unusual variety of art ranging from Gothic frescoes to contemporary sculpture.
In the early twentieth century a new trend in art emerged as a group of artists joined to form the Club of Independents, some of whom continued working under Tito's socialist government.
Slovenia has a small but vibrant art community today that is dominated by the multimedia group Neue Slowenische Kunst and a five-member artists' cooperative called IRWIN.
There is also a rich tradition of folk art which is best exemplified by the painted beehives illustrated with folk motifs that are found throughout Slovenia.
Folk music and dance are an important part of Slovenia's culture. The Institute of Music and National Manuscripts in Ljubljana maintains an archive of the wide variety of traditional songs and fables set to music.
Folk dances are still a part of traditional celebrations, and the first ballet school, which was established in Slovenia in as a part of the Ljubljana Opera, continues to perform.
Other dance companies, including contemporary and avant-garde, have also been formed. Slovenia has a strong tradition in the sciences, with several important figures, including Janez Vajkard Valvasor, a seventeenth-century mathematician and Fritz Pregl, who won the Nobel Prize for chemistry in The Slovenian Academy of Arts and Sciences has a research center with fourteen institutes conducting research on all aspects of science, history, and culture.
