European Voice has a nice article about Slovenia's "erased" (the people whose citizenship was taken when Slovenia became independent). According to the article aversion against the Balkans is an important issue in the Slovenian society. The effect is made worse by a wide gap in Slovenia between the big city and the countryside. Any action to improve the fate of the erased becomes a target of rightwing populists.
