Political Repression in Socialist Slovenia (Yugoslavia)
In the paper the author deals with various forms of violence in Slovenia after the Second World war. The most repressive of all was the period immediately after the Second World War. Although, in the subsequent decades, there were occasional administrative and judicial settlings of accounts, the system slowly softened. A progressively deepening crisis in Yugoslavia and an ever growing pressure from the center in Belgrade brought an end to the political repression and the control of the opposition by the end of the 1980s. A political struggle for power began. An interim period of gradual democratization in the 1980s was followed by multi-party elections in 1990 and a change of power. The classic division into the legislative, executive and judicial powers was established as were various forms of public control over the repressive institutions and activity.
