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 2016 volume, this section addresses two topical issues: the impact of counter-terrorism legislation on minority protection and the intersectionality of gender and minority activism in light of the impact of EU institutions on Romani women activism.
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.

It combines analysis, commentary and documentation in relation to conflict management, international legal developments and domestic legislation affecting minorities in Europe.
In this volume, the Thematic Articles section addresses such topical and controversial issues as indigenous peoples in the context of climate change and perspectives for the integration of ‘old’ and ‘new’ minorities. The International Developments section offers a deeper understanding of the international organizations’ approach to such pan-European challenges and developments as minority issues in the criminal justice system; cultural activities and facilities, including the media; participation, citizenship and trans frontier exchanges. The section on National Developments presents case studies that cover some noteworthy developments, such as kin-state policies of Serbia, Romania, Hungary and Russia; referenda in Catalonia and Scotland; and major events in Romania, Russia, Macedonia, and Georgia.

Shariʿa Councils and Muslim Women in Britain

Rethinking the Role of Power and Authority

Series:

Tanya Walker

The public debate on Shariʿa councils in Britain has been heavily influenced by the assumption that the councils exist as religious authorities and that those who use them exercise their right to religious freedom. In Shariʿa Councils and Muslim Women in Britain Tanya Walker draws on extensive fieldwork from over 100 cases to argue for a radically different understanding of the setting and dynamics of the Shariʿa councils. The analysis highlights the pragmatic manoeuvrings of Muslim women, in pursuit of defined objectives, within limited space – holding in tension both the constraints of particular frameworks of power, and the realities of women’s agency. Despite this needed nuance in a polarised debate however, important questions about the rights of Muslim women remain.
