THE RELATION OF THE REPUBLIC OF SLOVENIA TOWARDS RETURNING OF EMIGRANTS AND THEIR DESCENDANTS
This nearly too descriptive a text reveals how the Republic of Slovenia with its institutions legally and normatively regulates various fields and solves concrete problems the returnees and members of their families meet with, and how (if at all) the state defines in various guidelines or concrete actions towards this phenomena. A review of different fields reveals that an active policy, which would encourage or at least more complexly and synchronically solve the phenomenon of remigration, does not exist. The legislation, ministries and other state institutions with their laws, guidelines, starting-points, programmes and other actions, are dealing with remigration only partially and sporadically.
In its continuation, the article presents the Resolution on Relations with Slovenes across the World, adopted by the parliament in 2002.The resolution presents the first step on the way to complex solving and encouraging remigration. Yet on the other hand it brings only a basis for the in the article presented “Law on relations of the Republic of Slovenia with Slovenes outside Slovene borders”, with which the proposers aimed among other to legally regulate some fields or difficulties, and to mark out the state policy towards remigration. The submitted law was in 2004 in the parliament turned down.
