Significance for science
In the Slovenian historiography and historical demography as its sub-discipline there is a substantial lack on the team work and projects which would product great methodological and complex syntheses of social, demographic and socio-cultural aspects. Beginning in France in the fifties-and later elsewhere in Europe-historians began working on the large macro- as well as micro- demographic studies especially under the auspice of various institutions and universities, meanwhile in the Slovenian historiographical research field there was deficiency of demographic topics. There were few population studies of individual authors; however, methods they used are mostly incomparable. Therefore, the significance of this project is greater, because for the first time a group of experts (project team) discussed this particular area together from a different perspective which was up to this date often excluded from national historical interest. The application of demographic methodologies is based largely on informational technology (digitalized demographic statistic data and computer processing of data bases) what is certainly a novelty in the Slovenian historiography. This work brings many advantages such as possibility of processing large amount of data, quantitative analysis, identification of certain social phenomena and processes, graphical presentation of the results, etc...Project results bring an important contribution to supplement the knowledge within Slovenian academic field as well as amendment through refinement of syllabus of courses on the Faculty of Humanities Koper. Members of the project group were also mentors to innovative diploma theses and doctoral dissertations. Project leader was mentor to this date unfinished doctoral dissertation entitled Socio-demographic image of the population of commune Koper in the 18th century based on Parish Registers (author: Meliha Fajić). The work presents fsubstantive and methodological contribution based on the unpublished sources (censuses and parish registers). The importance of the results of the project for the development of science lies in the attainment of comparability of Slovenian historiography with European and worldwide historiographies, in particular through enhancement of methodological apparatus, consolidation and further development of already pledged fundamental research areas.
Significance for the country
The studies carried out within the framework of the project, will enrich the knowledge of the past of the region, thereby contributing to the strengthening of the regional identity. Results of the research project will be useful also generally to the Slovene society and the Slovenes themselves, for they strengthen the knowledge of their history and thus substantiate their identity and affiliation. The elucidation of demographic relations in the urban and rural areas of Slovene Istria is indispensable for the understanding of subsequent changes, which is useful for both local and national Slovene institutions. The results of the research project will be used by research institutuions as well as by the state administrations and public institutions in the management of the social-demographic development as well as improving of the education, intercultural communications and the preserving of the cultural heritage, especially by the knowledge of the rules of the social-demographic development in the area along the border; assurance of the contemporary knowledge and materials for the teaching of the history of Primorska and its accessibility to the researchers; preservation of the Slovenian non-material cultural heritage in Primorska. Besides, the project results will represent example of an integral socio-demographic analysis of the defined area; for this purpose the research group will carry on and also improve their international scientific collaboration.
