ABSTRACT
In the following article the author will briefly cover the genesis of the Slovenian corporate governance system. Firstly, the author will describe the preceding self-governance system, which only influenced the present system in some respects, and the eventual abandonment of this system. After that the author will analyse the present model of corporate governance in Slovenian enterprises. This is a two-tier model, which follows the characteristics of the German model. The author will primarily discuss the two issues within this model of corporate governance that most draw the attention of Slovenian authors: the role of the supervisory board and the role of labor representatives within the supervisory board. On the basis of the rich history of governance in Slovenian enterprises, the author will discuss some broader issues relevant for understanding the phenomenon. He will also briefly speculate about the possible future of corporate governance on the basis of current developments and Slovenian experience.
