In research activities of the Program group, the emphasis was given to the position of small states in international relations, especially in the context of globalisation, the implications of the European Union (EU) enlargement for Slovenia, and the internationalisation of activities of Slovene companies (inward and outward). Interdisciplinary nature of the Program group necessitates broader theoretical framework including theories of realism, triad of general theories of international relations (rationalism, constructivism, and poststructuralism), sociological theories of international relations and their institutionalisation, theories of international trade and production, customs union, integration and internationalisation (the Scandinavian school, investment developing path ...). Methodologically, different approaches were used, among them especially surveys, interviews and text analysing. The interpretation was based on the contemporary statistical methods including network analysis. Here are some very general results. First, globalisation and regionalisation may enhance the position of small states, provided that states pursue policy of quick reaction and adjustment to external changes. Second, the position of small states clearly depends on development of global institutions and organisations. Third, the EU enlargement is not only in the interest of the applicant countries, but also of the EU member states. Fourth, by no means the small states are intrinsically weak states, especially if they are capable of using their relational power. Fifth, the Slovene economy needs to be internationalised in every possible way. Globalisation is not a goal per se, but only the means to achieve the essential objective of development – an increase of welfare and human development in every possible aspect. One of the weaknesses of Slovene economy is too little foreign direct investment, which enhance competitiveness. And lastly, in view of the prospective EU membership, the basic policy challenge is to frame a new post-membership paradigm of development.
