Perović graduated from the Faculty of Law in 1978 in Podgorica. As a student, he was active in a number of social projects, including Mi youth magazine, Radio Cetinje, and ARS – Review of Culture, Art and Science. Perović was a member of the League of Communists of Montenegro and belonged to a younger, more liberal wing of the party. He was also co-founder and president of the Literary Municipality of Cetinje publishing house. He was driven to enter the publishing business by his interests in literature, poetry, and politics opposed to communist ideology, such as the issue of national politics.
The year 1988 was crucial for Slavko Perović. After his decision as the president of the Literary Municipality of Cetinje to publish the book Etnogenezofobija by Savo Brković, Perović was dismissed from his position there and from the editorial board of ARS, and it eventually led to the closure of the publishing house.
Because of his “inappropriate” political engagement, Slavko Perović was dismissed from his position as the Municipal Public Prosecutor, which he performed prior to the scandal with publishing Etnogenezofobija and expelled from the Central Committee of the League of Communists of Montenegro.
Throughout the 1990s, Perović participated in the anti-war movement that actively opposed Montenegrin involvement in the Yugoslav Wars.Perović withdrew from the LSCG after 2002 and now lives in Prague, but remains actively interested in further political developments in Montenegro.
