Abstract

Over the last thirty years, Slovenia has undergone a transition from a communist to a democratic settlement, which has had important consequences for the political, economic, social and cultural spheres, including sport. Since Slovenia’s independence in 1991, Slovene athletes have achieved many sporting successes at major international competitions. For a country that is small in population, size and wealth (Thorhallsson, 2006), these sporting achievements indicate a certain level of effectiveness of the elite sport system. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to explore and analyse the sport policy context underpinning sporting success in Slovenia. The research question is: To what extent can the SPLISS framework explain the effectiveness of the elite sport system in Slovenia?
