Trends of Radicalisation in Slovenia

Gregor Bulc

This report addresses the issues of radicalization in Slovenia via a case study of a particular “hotspot of radicalization” – namely, an organised homophobic attack on Cafe Open a LGBTQ+ venue in Ljubljana by a far-right group. The report has four principal parts. The first part describes the hotspot of radicalisation, presenting in detail the homophobic incident; the second part discerns the methodology used; the third part provides a multilevel analysis of the forces of radicalization connected to the hotspot, including the identification of the macro, meso micro, facilitating and motivational factors that influenced to the radical act. The final part of the report quantifies the attackers’ motivational factors via the I-GAP coding method and puts them in relation to macro, meso, micro and facilitating factors. The report argues that the homophobic attack on Cafe Open has become more than just a specific historical occurrence. Rather it is Slovenia’s representative “hotspot of radicalisation” as it can still speak today to processes of radicalization in Slovenian society.
