Post-1989 development in Slovakia attracted a lot of academic attention, mostly due to a more complicated path to consolidated democracy than that of its neighbours. The country represented a post-communist “show-case” of nationalism accompanied with clearly identified semi-authoritarian populist politics and radical-right nationalistic appeals. Foreign scholars (Deegan-Krause 2004; Haughton 2005; Henderson 2002; Deegan-Krause and Haughton 2009 ; Mareš  2009; and others), as well as the domestic ones (Uč eň  2004; Mesež nikov and Gyá rfá š ová  2008; Mesež nikov 2009; Nociar 2012) concentrated on identifying the causes and consequences of these developments, focusing mostly on the first and second decades of transformation.
