Citizen’s assemblies in Slovenia are a shining example of direct democracy at the municipal level. They began out of dissatisfaction with the way politics was conducted at the city level in 2012. In the beginning the organization drew from an older generation who remembered how workers’ self-management worked in Yugoslavia before it was destroyed. These monthly community meetings have been going for ten years and introduced participatory budgeting in 2015. They’ve drawn on the works of Michael Albert and Robin Hahnel.
