Focus on the impact of the EU policies of migration and integration in Central European Countries


Slovenia is mainly an immigration country with high migration flows from the former Yugoslavian countries. Most immigration is temporary labour migration with majority of immigrant workers being male employed in construction and manufacturing. However, Slovenia is gradually restricting the access of immigrants to its labour market. As a result of protectionist policy, the number of new immigrants dropped the fourth consecutive year in row in 2011. According to national data, the share of foreign citizens on Slovenia’s population was 4 % in 2011. In 2010, Slovenian government adopted the Strategy for Economic Migrations for 2010-20 focusing on migration of highly skilled workers. Slovenia introduced systematic measures on integration of migrants by the Decree on the Integration of Aliens (Slovenian only) adopted in 2008, followed by several integration programs.
