The traditional division of Europe into sovereign states is a reason for different constitutional systems in the European states. However, all along the development of the constitutional law in Europe there have always been certain tendencies towards mutual approaching. After the Second World War two integrating processes above all influenced the development of constitutional systems in the European states - the formation of the European Economic Community and the formation and development of the Council of Europe. At first none of these processes required any substantive changes of constitutional systems of members states of the two communities. On the other hand these intergrating processes directly influenced the constitutional development of these states, but this took place in different manners. The transformation of the European Economic Community into the European Union caused a need to conform constitutional systems of member states to the strengthened supra-national role of the European union, and in some states even changes of their Constitutions. At the same time there is a process of building up of the law of the European Union because the legal order of the European Union is becoming less the international public law and more a constitutional legal order. The possibility of adoption of a Constitution of the European Union in the future is therefore more and more realistic. The mentioned processes in Europe in the field of constitutional law will inevitably more and more influence also the development of the constitutional law in the Republic of Slovenia. The process of association with the European Union and the process of harmonisation of the Slovene legal order with the legal order of the European Union, and the constitutional preparing for the membership in European Union necessarily and importantly affect the constitutional practice but also demand some constitutional changes. This is not only the question of single actions but of a permanent process which is dictated and scheduled by the development of the constitutional system of the European Union. All these processes deeply influence the development of the constitutional order of Slovenia and place before it completely new demands. Therefore it is necessary to examine closely the fundamental causes and directions which will co-shape its future evolution and the means and manners for its appropriate adaptation to new postulations.
