The Position of the Slovene Revolutionary Marxists Regarding the Montenegrin Question in 1923

  • Jurij Perovšek Inštitut za novejšo zgodovino


The author presents the position of the Slovene communists with regards to the so-called Montenegrin question in 1923. In the context of a public political discussion on the national question, from May to December that year, the Yugoslav Communist Party (Komunistična stranka Yugoslavije) devised its multi-national, federal program. The author points out that it was the Slovene communists who first called for the recognition of Montenegro as a legal state entity and its inclusion in the Party's federal program. He concludes that the political process, which eventually resulted in the formation of the Republic of  ontenegro within the second, federal Yugoslav state, had actually been started as early as 1923 by the Slovene members of the YCP.
