englischThis 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.

»In ihrem ausführlichen Einleitungskapitel bieten die Herausgeber nicht nur eine exzellente Zusammenfassung der einzelnen Beiträge sondern stellen auch das Forschungsparadigma ›Kleinstaaten‹ vor, anhand dessen Norwegen und Slowenien verglichen werden sollen. Insgesamt bietet der Sammelband interessante Informationen zu Norwegen und Slowenien.«
