Assessment of concept between rural development challenges and local food systems : A combination between Multi-criteria decision analysis and econometric modelling approach
Jernej Prišenk, Jernej Turk, 2022, original scientific article

Abstract: This study investigates the influence of social, economic, and environmental impacts on the promotion and marketing systems of local food products from mountain areas in Slovenia. These impacts were assessed using an econometric modelling approach. Two econometric models were developed (one for production and one for marketing). The case studies of local food products were selected from Slovenian mountain regions, most of which were from less-favored areas (LFAs). A majority of the selected food commodities were of high quality, with or without protected designations. Data collection was carried out via interviews. Due to production limitation on mountain areas in Slovenia and other constraints in LFAs, the socio-economic and environmental impacts on success of production and marketing systems need to be clarified. These relations present a potential impact on the wider socio-economic development in the region. The empirical results, obtained using an econometric modelling approach, clearly show the importance of encouraging the socio-economic and environmental impacts in ensuring the marketing and production potentials of local food products. The result express good relationships, and cooperation between the actors in the food supply chains contributing to a successful marketing system and production system of local food products (small, average, large) is dependent on the available local labour in mountain rural areas.

Development of a local event 'Summer in Samobor'
Nika Martina Mišić, 2023, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: Events are one of the main factors of tourism development of a destination. Also, local events are one of the biggest factors that influence tourism in every town, city or community, and they are of great importance for a tourist destination. Summer in Samobor is a particularly successful new event that is in the process of development. In the theoretical part of the graduate thesis, the following topics are explained: the significance of the event, the type and size of the event, the planning and realisation of the event and the sustainability of the event. In the first part of our research, we presented the theoretical knowledge on the subject. Then we presented the event Summer in Samobor taking into account the following factors: aims and visions of the event, programme of the event, place and time of the event, registrations and permits, financial management, sponsors, media and promotion, food and beverages, and finally the sustainability of the event. As part of our research, we conducted interviews with the representative of the external agency Wanderlust Events and the representative of the Samobor Tourist Board. Using the interviews mentioned, we found out how the event developed, what factors influenced the success of the event and how sustainable the event is. The results of this research show that this event is developing every year and that the quality of the event is constantly being raised. Also, as some of the main success factors of the event Summer in Samobor, the following were emphasized: improvement of socio-cultural awareness, strong promotion of sustainable events, rich and high-quality content,uniqueness, cooperation and support of partners, good organization and creative ideas.
Keywords: event management, local event, sustainability, Samobor, factor of successful development

Research on vehicle re-identification algorithm based on fusion attention method
Peng Chen, Shuang Liu, Simon Kolmanič, 2023, original scientific article

Abstract: The specific task of vehicle re-identification is how to quickly and correctly match the same vehicle in different scenarios. In order to solve the problem of inter-class similarity and environmental interference in vehicle images in complex scenes, one fusion attention method is put forward based on the idea of obtaining the distinguishing features of details-the mechanism for the vehicle re-identification method. First, the vehicle image is preprocessed to restore the image's attributes better. Then, the processed image is sent to ResNet50 to extract the features of the second and third layers, respectively. Then, the feature fusion is carried out through the two-layer attention mechanism for a network model. This model can better focus on local detail features, and global features are constructed and named SDLAU-Reid. In the training process, a data augmentation strategy of random erasure is adopted to improve the robustness. The experimental results show that the mAP and rank-k indicators of the model on VeRi-776 and the VehicleID are better than the results of the existing vehicle re-identification algorithms, which verifies the algorithm's effectiveness.
Keywords: vehicle re-identification, attention mechanism, key-point, local feature, feature fusion

Cultural events as tools of developing sustainable tourism in rural areas : the case of Sevnica in Slovenia
Jasna Potočnik Topler, 2021, original scientific article

Abstract: The purpose of this article is to identify cultural tourism as one of the best practices that can help in the implementation of the Strategy for Sustainable Growth of Slovenian Tourism (2017 - 2021) and to examine the role of cultural events as tools for the development of sustainable tourism. The latter is one of the main trends in the tourism sector, at least in the European context and also in Slovenia as a member country of the European Union. The challenge of developing sustainable tourism destinations is considerable in rural areas, where local communities must be closely observed and by all means included in the decision-making process on future tourism development. This is of the utmost importance as tourism is much more than an economic activity. Therefore, key decision-makers need to be aware that tourism activities affect all local people and many areas of their life and that the role of tourism in rural areas is to improve the quality of life of the local population. Since at least some form of culture can be found in every village, small (rural) tourist destinations often find important opportunities for sustainable tourism development in organizing cultural events, which lead to greater community visibility, cultural branding of the destination, which is significant and also several business opportunities. On the case of Sevnica, this article aims to demonstrate that there is great potential for further development of cultural tourism and its subtypes in Slovenia by further developing cultural tourism and various tourism products based on rich cultural heritage.

Local tourism development : earmarked taxes for enhancing tourism in Slovenian municipalities
Irena Bačlija Brajnik, Marjetka Rangus, 2022, independent scientific component part or a chapter in a monograph

Abstract: Slovenia has built a system of local self-government within the main provisions of the European Charter on local selfgovernment. According to the local Self-Government Act, municipalities have some competences in individual areas of development, including tourism. However, the existing system could further benefit from enhancing local autonomy – whether in policy scope or fiscal capacity. Municipalities are not stimulated to engage in proactive management of local policies and services, and although the competences of municipalities are regulated (and protected) by the Constitution, the Local SelfGovernment Acts and special laws, some policy areas are too loosely defined and rely heavily on the agendas of individual local governments. In this contribution, we address the question of how municipalities collect resources to develop tourism, and what are the issues in planning tourism-related investments.
Keywords: tourism development, municipalities, tourism tax, investment, local budget

Work of Ljubljana’s Municipal Warden Service – from repression to prevention and collaboration
Tinkara Bulovec, Roman Fortuna, 2023, original scientific article

Abstract: Purpose: This article highlights the work of Ljubljana’s Municipal Warden Service (MWS), emphasizing the application of criminological knowledge in both preventive and repressive efforts. Design/Methods/Approach: We performed both qualitative and quantitative analyses using data from the SUDMR and PowerBI apps, employed by municipal wardens to track preventive actions and map repressive measures. Findings: In recent years, there has been a significant increase in both repressive and preventive actions of municipal wardens, with 115,453 measures implemented and 2,752 hours allocated to preventive work in 2022. The majority of repressive measures targeted road-related offenses. Community-oriented work and engagement were prioritized, especially in the densely populated city centre, focusing on road traffic and vulnerable road users. Integrating the apps used by MWS with criminological knowledge supports future planning, implementation, and justification of measures, as well as urban planning. Besides, mutual cooperation and exchange of information between MWS and other stakeholders are key to comprehensive security provision in the local environment. Research Limitations/Implications: A key limitation is that we only analysed repressive and preventive measures conducted by the MWS Ljubljana in 2022. Practical Implications: Applying criminological findings to municipal warden work is effective. Utilizing hot spot displays supports informed decision-making and preventive strategies. In instances where general prevention methods and misdemeanour procedures prove ineffective in ensuring public safety and preventing violations, particularly findings from the field of prevention, community policing and plural policing, can be useful. Originality/Value: This study is pioneering with a unique approach, utilizing new methodologies and perspectives to explain and validate the work of municipal wardens.
Keywords: Municipal Warden Service, City of Ljubljana, criminological findings, prevention, repression, local safety and security
