The European Yearbook of Minority Issues provides a critical and timely review of contemporary developments in minority-majority relations in Europe. It combines analysis, commentary and documentation in relation to conflict management, international legal developments and domestic legislation affecting minorities in Europe.
Part I contains scholarly articles and, in the 2014 volume, features a special focus section on citizenship regimes and policies of immigrants’ inclusion in sub-national territorial entities, such as Italian and Spanish regions, Scotland, the Åland Islands and Quebec.
Part II contains reports on national and international developments.
Apart from providing a unique annual overview of minority issues for both scholars and practitioners in this field, the Yearbook is an indispensable reference tool for libraries, research institutes as well as governments and international organisations.
The European Yearbook of Minority Issues is also available online.
