Iztok Prezelj

Abstract


ABSTRACTThis paper is a case study of how Slovenia as a member state of EU and NATOadapted to the complex security environment. During its war for independence an effectiveand comprehensive crisis management system was established, however many key lessonswere later forgotten due to the fierce interministerial competition (1991-1994). The 9-11created conditions for a second wave of reforms directed to improve horizontal interagencycooperation in crisis management. This paper explains some of the reforms and activitiesthat could potentially be a role model for other similar states. However, the paperconcludes that Slovenia is still far from the optimal horizontal and interagency crisismanagement system.Keywords: crisis, crisis management, Slovenia, system
