4. Thus we were reformed in the 90s: Student organisation of Slovenia

Slovenia and Yugoslavia have rich history of student movements and different political levels of institutionalized student organizations. In contrary to some previous institutions which were part of Yugoslavian political nomenclature and in contrary to student protests in sixties and seventies – wich were well archived and documented – transformation of socialist youth and student organization to so-called autonomous Student organization of Slovenia in the early nineties is almost forgotten and inadequately documented. There is no single serious study about this transformation, which affected students` politics to the point that – because of ineffective and corrupted student organization – most of the students` life became highly depoliticised. We try to unveil some memories of the most important years of this transformation with people who were responsible for institutional reformation of previous Yugoslavian youth and students organizations called »Republic Conference of Association of Socialistic Youth of Slovenia« and »University Conference of Association of Socialistic Youth of Slovenia«.
