Social provision in Slovenia has pursued a gradual path of development towards a post-socialist model. The country faced a pronounced recession after the 2008 economic crisis, with a second recession in 2012. This was further exacerbated by political instability with a restructuring of left and right political coalitions. These pressures, coupled with an emphasis on austerity, led to structural reforms of the welfare system, which resulted in a step change in the reform process. This chapter considers future directions in welfare in Slovenia, using data from attitude surveys and analysing policy documents in order to examine current patterns of solidarity and division in support for different aspect of welfare state provision.

Keywords:   Slovenia, welfare state, recession, austerity, pensions, reforms, political change, familialism
