Populism, Memory and Minority Rights is the flagship publication of the Tom Lantos Institute (TLI), a highly-regarded international human rights institute based in Budapest, Hungary. The publication provides a forum for discussion on crucial themes of global and regional importance on the accommodation of ethno-cultural diversity and related normative developments. It introduces TLI’s work in terms of its mandated issue areas, including Roma rights and citizenship, Jewish life and antisemitism, and Hungarian and other national minorities. The theoretical and empirical studies, commentaries, interviews, reports and other documents offer a unique source of information for libraries, research institutes, civil society actors, governments, intergovernmental organizations and all those interested in contemporary normative trends and debates in international minority protection.
Anna-Mária Bíró, PhD, is the Director of the Tom Lantos Institute. She directed Minority Rights Group Europe and worked at the OSCE Mission in Kosovo. She advocated and published extensively in the field of international minority protection.
"(...) many of the chapters present high-quality research and rich empirical data, which can be recommended for social science and legal scholars, and human rights activists interested in these specific topics." Tibor Toró, European Yearbook of Minority Issues, Volume 18 (2019).
