Abstract:
Carinthia, the southernmost province In Austria is home to two linguistic communities, a German-speaking majority and a Slovene-speaking minority. The Slovene minority is an autochthonous ethnic minority, a vestige of former Slavic groups who once populated the area of today's Carinthia. In the province, over past centuries interethnic relations have been relatively fraught, and this is also true of the contemporary situation in Carinthia. The tensions reside in a set of complex relations between the two separate linguistic communities: the largely bilingual Slovene Carinthian community and the German-speaking Carinthian community The aim of this work is to look specifically at the period 1972 to 2005 and analyse whether continuity or change has prevailed in the social, political and cultural environment of the Slovene minority within the context of Carinthian politics
