Emigration of Slovenes to western European territory, their organization and activities in the immigration communities, preservation of national identity, maintainance of contacts with homeland, and resocialisation, aculturation and integration/assimilation processes in the new surroundings are the basic research aims of this project. The western European territory attracted Slovenes for centuries, most in the 19th and 20th centuries. Beside the prevailing economic reason for emigration there were other, for example political; emigration was permanent or temporary, for example season workers in agriculture (France and Germany between the Two Wars). The main directions of emigration were to the German parts of Austria, Germany, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg and Switzerland and in a minor extent to other European countries, eg. Scandinavia (particularly Sweden from 1960 on). Beside historical the sociological approach is used as a method of research. The main stress of the research is on ascertaining the number of emigrants, their profession structure, forms of emigration (permanent, temporary), social problematic (influence of economic crises and their consequences), social and educational life of the emigrants, on contacts with the homeland and its relation towards Slovenes abroad. Least but not last the project researches into inclusion of Slovenes into immigrant surroundings and their contribution to the development of immigrant countries.
