    Iztok Šori on prostitution
  • Opposite sex couples may marry on Saturdays in Ljubljana Castle, while same-sex couples may register on a weekday in some office in Mačkova street. This resembles the American racist policy which kept the whites in the front and the black in the back of the bus.
    Roman Kuhar on discrimination
  • The complex phenomena of nationalism and racism necessitate, alongside their historical, socio-economic and geographical characteristics, analysing also their intertwining and interdependence in the present.
