The intended research programme follows the directions of the previous programme group (period 2009-2012) Political, cultural, economic, social and religious history of Styria, Carinthia and Prekmurje and its place in the Central European area, with base of the project again being geographical area of the North Eastern Slovenia in the widest sense of this term. A personally improved group is therefore going to try to dedicate itself to research questions, connected with geographical components and smaller units of the said area with even greater intensity.  The mentioned framework means that it is going to research central as well as marginal regional units and subregions, from the entire present-day Carinthia, Dreta and Šalek Valley to Lower Sava region and Kozjansko, Lower Drava Valley, in Prekmurje for instance Lendava corner, and Raab region. A partial novelty in the forthcoming period will be a consistent linking of events in the treated area within the borders of the Republic of Slovenia to development processes in all neighbouring regions and subregions.  Even more than before multiculturalism, questions of symbiosis, tolerance and intolerance, social and ethnic minorities in different historical periods, questions of social inclusion and marginalisation, violations of fundamental human rights and crime will be put in spotlight. As before the structure of programme group was harmonized with programme focal points. The same is true for the duration of its scientific life. The programme group will, if confirmed, continue to research many various topics in most historical periods whereby a light centre of gravity will remain on items of economic, political, social, religious and cultural history from the last two centuries. In centre will stand local, regional and supraregional forms of activities of different parties and movements, formation of social, political and ideological concepts among populace of all ethnic communities, living in the mentioned area and in its neighbourhood, and the concrete forms of conflicts between them. In this regard particular attention will be dedicated to the period immediately after the both world wars when it came to essential changes on various levels of life. In similar way and based on an interdisciplinary approach topics from recent past, from the period of independence movement and democratization in Slovenia, will be treated, again with the regional framework emphasized. The personal renewal of the programme group will bring a new emphasize – history of sports, which won’t be subjected to an isolated treatment, but will be placed on the crossroads of political, economic and social history, especially in the context of situation after the World War II and in last decades of existence of the former Yugoslavia. It must be stressed that the main goal of the proposed programme group is the preparation of a comprehensive joint scientific monograph of the group members with the working title History of North Eastern Slovenia and of neighbouring regions of Austria, Hungary and Croatia from Antiquity to our days. It will be a broad synthesis of all the work connected to the project.
Significance for science
Research was directed at complex analyses of a space as well as processes, interactions and circumstances in it regardless interethnic and other relations in various periods. In the space multiethnic and multicultural tendencies were formed through the centuries and created an impressive fresco of life within the borders of regions and subregions. A deep understanding of relations and interactions between individual and society and between individual and institutions is a a precious contribution to the formation of such relations in a broader European area. The area of interest, covered by the research group, on the other hand offered many new dates in the area of their special interest to scientists from neighbouring countries and from Europe. Since we are part of process of constant scientific and project exchanges for quite a long time, the achieved scientific results helped the group members with their inclusion and an appropriate participation in current scientific trends around us.
Significance for the country
The intensive treatment of lesser known and especially outstanding scientific topics, done by the research group, will certainly be helpful for many regional, provincial and local factors in culture, education, science, tourism and in the preservation of natural and cultural heritage. Some aspects of political, economic, cultural, social and religious history of different parts of the included area even weren’t object of scientific analysis so far. To shorten our point, the achieved results of the programme group create concrete possibilities for the development of tourism, mass and individual recreation, trekking, cultural events and new forms of agriculture. That all can certainly be a way to creation of new working places, to successful execution of structural and development micro projects in different local environments and to concrete additional employing of individuals in many other activities, connected to the mentioned areas.
