ABSTRACT
The article examines the general assessment that socialist legislative assemblies are but rubber-stamp parliaments, and finds exemptions from this assessment through the case study of the Yugoslav system. The author designs a theoretical model and applies it in studying post-war Yugoslavia’s socialist parliamentarism, which she defines as being real-socialist, during the period 1946–1991. Her research uses a wide pool of primary sources, including shorthand notes from socialist legislative assembly discussions, legal acts, documents of the Federal Assembly, federal ministries and other political bodies, statistical data, etc., examined against personal written notes by the most prominent politicians of the day and against the contemporary historical, legal and political science studies of the field. Due to Yugoslavia having had a federal government system, the author studies the political system on the federal level, taking into account government at the level of the republic and the local level where relevant. The author outlines the key characteristics of the self-governing socialist legislative assembly system and opens up new fields of research. The numerous constitutional amendments adopted in the 45-year period had gradually brought the system closer to democracy and parliamentarism and thus away from totalitarian regimes.

Keywords: parliamentarism, socialist legislative assembly, socialist legislative assembly system, Yugoslavia, Yugoslav constitution
