Cultural-artistic activity of Slovene emigrants – with the exception of their literary production – has hardly been a subject of systematic comprehensive research. For this reason the knowledge of this activity has been insufficient in Slovenia proper. Only a systematic overview of this component part of Slovene national culture, which was planned as a main result of the project, has made it possible to establish the position of various fields of the emigrants’ cultural-artistic activities in their new homelands as well as their place in the cultural arena of Slovenia proper. The result was also a basis for the elaboration of several suggestions in terms of the future cultural policy of Slovenian State concerning the emigrants.
Apart from a final research report, the project team has published the results of this project in the following publications: Dve domovini/Two Homelands, 14 (2001); Slavistična revija, 48 (2000), no. 2;  38. seminar slovenskega jezika, literature in kulture (Ljubljana: Center za slovenščino kot drugi/tuji jezik pri Oddelku za slovanske jezike in književnosti Filozofske fakultete, 2002); Zgodovina v šoli, 12 (2003), no. 1–2; Möglichkeiten und Grenzen des Multikulturalismus: der Schutz sprachlich-kultureller Vielfalt in Kanada und in Europa (Wien: Zentrum für Kanada-Studien, Universität Wien, 2004).
