The Weakening Environmental Struggle in Slovenia – a Sketch of Two Cases

In order to illuminate the environmental struggle in Slovenia, the article focuses on two concrete cases – the fight against new hydro plants on the Mura and Sava rivers, as well as the fight against waste incineration in Anhovo, a place already tainted by asbestos. Both cases confirm that the protection of nature and the environment are primarily conducted by non-governmental organizations. The author outlines several methods for attempting permanent interventions in nature that are being employed by private and public capital in conjunction with state institutions. Following the dictates of governing politics, the protection of the environment and nature is increasingly seen as an administrative obstacle and not as a constitutionally protected category.
