This document provides a brief summary of the main findings from the report produced by the Commissioner for Human Rights - Nils Muižnieks - after his visit to Slovenia in March. Four main human rights issues in Slovenia were highlighted in the report:

  1. Those concerning migrants
  2. Those concerning Roma
  3. Those concerning the ‘erased’ (about 25,000 individuals who lacked a legal status after Slovenia declared independence in 1991)
  4. Those concerning people living in poverty

The summary clearly outlines developments that the Commissioner identified as being positive in each of the four areas noted above, as well as issues which are still problematic and need to be addressed in each of the four areas. The summary also clearly summarises the Commissioner's recommendations.
