European Yearbook of Minority Issues, Volume 1 (2001/2002)


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 2001/2, features three special focus sections (‘Minority Rights as a New Regime of Multilevel Governance in Europe’, ‘Non-Discrimination’ and ‘Complex Power-Sharing Arrangements as a Means of Overcoming Self-Determination Disputes’), accompanied by a miscellaneous articles section.

Part II reviews the implementation of minority legislation and international standards at the universal and regional levels as well as new developments in relation to them and contains a chronology of events.

Apart from providing a unique annual overview of minority issues for both scholars and practitioners in this field, the Yearbook will be an indispensable reference tool for libraries, research institutes as well as governments and international organisations.
