Open Society Institute-Slovenia to Complete Its Work by the End of the Year

Ljubljana, 14 July - International philanthropist George Soros announced on Friday that the Open Society Institute-Slovenia (OSI-Slovenia) would complete its work by the end of the year 2000. As early as three years ago Soros announced to reduce funds, therefore the Institute, established in 1992, has been prepared for the closure. All liabilities towards those who receive the Institute's support will be met, while some of the projects will be carried on within partner organisations. The Institute will work on the strategic development of those programmes that will be transferred to Ljubljana's Peace Institute, which will be supported by Soros for at least three years. The amount of funds passed to the Institute is not known, since a contract on that has not been signed as yet.
