  • Carinthian Slovenes' clubs and the contacts between Carinthian Slovenes and Slovene-American politicians
    Grafenauer, Danijel
    This chapter deals with some unresolved questions regarding the Slovene minority in Austria. The roots of these questions are historical. Soon after the Carinthian Slovene refugees settled in ... Yugoslav Slovenia after the Plebiscite of 1920, they began to organize themselves in refugee associations.They are still today quite successful in maintaining cultural and other links with Carinthian Slovenes in Austria. We can consider them as a "bridge" in relations between Austria and Slovenia. It is clear that Austria has not yet managed to fulfill its international obligations, as stated in Article 7 of the 1955 Austrian State Treaty, which should effectively protect the Slovene minority from assimilation. Nevertheless, it is also clear that the right of the Slovene minority in Austria to use the Slovene language in communications with state authorities and administrative boards and the right to have bilingual topographical signs erected in autochthonous settlement areas are anchored in the constitutional clauses of Article 7 of the 1955 Treaty. The Carinthian Slovenes in Austria also attempted to win support for their endeavors to have Article 7 of the Austrian State Treaty implemented. They sought the support of a renowned American politician of Slovene origins, Frank Lausche, who tried to bring this issue to the attention of American diplomats in the 1970s and 1980s. Nevertheless, these attempts were not successful.
