These events caused the disruption of civil society traditions in the region of interest , and the continuity can be restored only partially, being impacted by the current crisis of traditional values in the society. On the other hand, the development after 1989 displays completely new trends focused on tourism, nature conservat ion, cross-border cooperation as well as other profit - oriented activities.

The institutional basis of civil sector activities is broader, mainly due to...

Kapusňáková, Zuzana ; Muhič Dizdarevič, Selma (advisor) ; Dohnalová, Marie (referee)
