From the multidisciplinarity aspect (historiography, sociology, ethnology, anthropology, literary history, politology, geography, art history and archivistics), issues on national and cultural identity of Slovene emigrants in the 19th and 20th centuries have been researched with stress on the following states: Australia, Argentina, The United States of America, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, Croatia, Bohemia, and Slovakia, and on the African continent. Within the frames of scientific methods of individual disciplines, theoretical researches were in parallel carried out; new approaches were sought for, comparisons with work methods of foreign migration researchers were made, which have proven that we are in tight connection with modern trends of researches in Europe and on other continents. Many researches were carried out on international levels. The results of the described work are evident from international monographs, miscellanies and journals, and least but not last, from the bilingual scientific journal Dve domovini/Two Homelands: Razprave o izseljenstvu, published for 15th year by the Inštitut za slovensko izseljenstvo of the ZRC SAZU. In the spirit of global changes in approaches to migrational problematic, we have included ourselves in the past period in ruminating on old paradigms and new perspectives in studying migrations in general, and Slovene emigration in particular as researching of the presence of Slovenes in the world being members of a small nation and state, is of necessity from the viewpoint of specificity in comparison to large nations. The catching up with the big and laying stress on Slovene inclusion in global migration processes is an achievement, which is evident from international scientific and professional conferences held in Slovenia and abroad, reciprocal exchange of results, lectures at foreign universities, publishing of monographs (series Migracije) at the ZRC SAZU publisher, and from other Slovene and foreign journals. Despite the small number of researchers within the programme group, we have achieved a recognition worldwide, which on the formal level demonstrates in membership in numerous international research organisations. With our methods and results, we are introducing novelties in the development of the above-mentioned scientific disciplines.
