Physical planning in Europe: A short review of activities and institutions of European physical planning and their applicability in Slovenia
The article presents a short review of considerations, which Slovenia will have to integrate in its physical planning system upon full membership in the EU.

First an overview of institutions and organisations is presented, with detailed descriptions of the EU and its organisations, programmes and initiatives. The article also presents an overview of other EU organisations, such as The European council and CEMAT and professional organisations. In conclusion a list of tasks facing Slovenia is stated, amongst other education of physical planning professionals and their organisation.
