  • Empfehlungen zur Stärkung der sorbischen Minderheit
    • Authors: Matthias Theodor Vogt
      Pages: 211 - 429
      Abstract: Abstract These "Recommendations to Enforce the Sorbian Minority by Creating a Coherent Cluster of Co-operation, Projects and Institutions" are the first example in the history of European Minorities of an in-depth analysis of state and local allocations, both on the cultural economy and the cultural policy levels, comprising a critical evaluation and a structured recommendation for the future. The study has been commissioned by representatives of the Sorbian people together with the Federal Republic of Germany, the Land Brandenburg and the Free State of Saxony via the Foundation for the Sorbian People at Bautzen. It has been elaborated 2008–2010 by the Institut für kulturelle Infrastruktur Sachsen in the framework of the Collegium Pontes Görlitz-Zgorzelec-Zhořelec, the German-Polish-Czech Institute of Advanced Studies of the Upper Lusatia. Under the guidance of the institute's director Matthias Theodor Vogt nearly hundred experts on minority issues from a dozen countries have been working on the issues. It took some time (and sharp adverse wind from several German institutions, up to now beneficiaries of Sorbian allocations), till the recommendations truly arrived in the midst of the Sorbian people which is the case now at the end of 2012. The European Journal of Minority Issues, feasting its first five years accomplished, publishes the entire study, with the help of the Zittau/Görlitz University, to mark the methodological progress within our academic field.

  • Zur Wende in der Minderheitenfrage: Zwischen Gewalt und Vernunft, vom
           Konflikt- zum Mehrwertpotenzial
    • Authors: Christoph Pan
      Pages: 147 - 167
      Abstract: Abstract The way European countries have treated the national minorities living on their territories has always been a manifestation of the way these minorities were perceived: as either a disturbing or an enriching part of society. Where minorities were considered as a source of conflict, the respective governments tried to get rid of them. Where the main focus was on their potential added value, governments tried to provide for their integration and protection - which, however, was rarely the case. Only at the turn from the 20th to the 21st century a fundamental change took place: In most European countries methods of conflict management in compliance with democratic, legal, and human rights standards were developed, which made visible the potential added value of national minorities and expressed appreciation for it. This article starts with an overview of current minority-related conflicts, taking into account the respective cause, matter, intensity and risk of violence. It then looks at current provisions, mainly at the level of the European Union and the Council of Europe, that can help to minimize the risk of conflict inherent to minority issues and enhance the added value minorities offer. Special emphasis is put on the role regional democracy plays in this context.

  • Der multikulturelle Balkan als Prüfstein für die
           Friedenssicherung in Europa
    • Authors: Klaus Ebert
      Pages: 168 - 180
      Abstract: Abstract In the delicate period of political transition between 1989 and 1991, the European Economic Community /European Community neglected to counter the political and ideological disorientation in the Balkans with a clear, credible European perspective open to all Balkan nations. Such vision was finally expressed at the European summit in Thessaloniki in 2003, with a tragic delay of at least 12 years. The offer of a common European future met with great enthusiasm across all countries and populations of the Balkans. In this sense, the "Thessaloniki process" constitutes one of the most successful achievements of the EU engagement in the Balkans so far. However, the attractiveness of a solution in the European context needs to be supported by additional factors of unity and cooperation, taking into account the particular historical context of the Balkan cultural space. At present, the economic crisis affecting Greece and the political crisis persisting in Kosovo, combined, seriously threaten to compromise the fragile equilibrium in the Balkans and to transform the region again in a tinderbox, with negative repercussions on the European project as a whole. This article analyses new approaches to conflict solution "in a Balkan way", based on "Balkan models" of multi-ethnic peaceful coexistence and cooperation, which have been entirely, or nearly entirely, neglected so far due to the pernicious persistence of negative stereotypes. "Balkan models" of conflict solution may prove more compatible with the cultural context of the Balkan Peninsula than ahistorical solutions imposed from outside.

  • Zur politischen Vertretung der deutschen Minderheit in Dänemark nach der
           Kommunalreform von 2007
    • Authors: Hans Heinrich Hansen
      Pages: 181 - 186
      Abstract: Abstract 2007 saw the introduction of a local government reform which has also reduced the 23 Nordschleswig / Sønderjylland communes (with 250,000 inhabitants) to four, thereby integrating the area of settlement of the German minority in Denmark into a newly-created region “South Denmark” (with approximately 1.2 million inhabitants). This article demonstrates how the problem of political representation of the German minority on a local level (as a result of this reform) was solved through referencing a European best-practice example and by means of support of the monitoring mechanism applying to the Council of Europe Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities.

      Abstract: Abstract This article presents a short survey of the Danish minority in Germany, its history, its present situation, the work of its organisations and its school system. The article focuses especially on the legal foundations relating to the minority protection of the Danish minority on a national and international level and the effects of the monitoring mechanism applying to the Council of Europe's Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities and the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages.

  • Das Nordfriisk Instituut - wissenschaftliche Arbeit für das
           Friesische
    • Authors: Thomas Steensen
      Pages: 196 - 204
      Abstract: Abstract The North Frisians – who live in the German “Bundesland” [federal state] Schleswig-Holstein – are one of the smallest national minorities in Europe, constituting a minority in their ancestral land. The administrative district of Nordfriesland [North Frisia], established in 1970, has slightly more than 160,000 inhabitants. It is estimated that close to one third of them consider themselves as Frisians. Fewer than 10,000 people speak Frisian, an original Western Germanic language. The Nordfriisk Instituut in Bräist/Bredstedt is a scientific institution for the Frisian language, culture, and history in North Frisia. This article gives an overview of the institute's history, structure, and its variety of activities, mainly in the fields of documentation, language, history and regional studies, publications and public relations.

  • The Lisbon Treaty: a rich cocktail served in an only half-full glass
    • Authors: Gabriel N. Toggenburg
      Pages: 78 - 87
      Abstract: Summary One can say that the Treaty of Lisbon puts persons belonging to minorities in an unprecedented prominent position. The fact that also persons belonging to national minorities are now referred to in the Charter (that is in primary law) is a timely clarification that the Union is concerned with persons belonging to minorities not only in the context of the Copenhagen criteria (thus in the context of its enlargement policy), but also in the framework of the vast variety of its internal policies. This insight will help doing away with the impression that, from an EU-perspective, the protection of persons belonging to such minorities would be "an export article and not one for domestic consumption". At the same time the legal resources for protecting minorities were not substantially increased by the Treaty. But the new diversity-commitment will have to be taken into account by the judiciary and the legislator in a plethora of contexts. In that sense the Lisbon Cocktail is served in a glass that is more half-full than half-empty.

  • Zur Novellierung des österreichischen Volksgruppengesetzes:
           Einführung und Kommentar
    • Authors: Beate Sibylle Pfeil
      Pages: 88 - 99
      Abstract: Summary This article presents a short introduction to the existing Austrian system of minority protection in both the context of the long tradition of Austrian minority law legislation and more recent developments in Europe since 1989/1990. It also highlights briefly the controversy surrounding the draft amendment to the Austrian Law on National Minorities (Volksgruppengesetz) presented by the Federal Chancellor's office in spring 2012, a controversy that amounts to two fundamentally different approaches of minority protection.

  • Zur Novellierung des österreichischen Volksgruppengesetzes: Eine
           Stellungnahme im Auftrag der Rechtswissenschaftlichen Fakultät der
           Universität Wien
    • Authors: Dieter Kolonovits
      Pages: 100 - 106
      Abstract: Summary This article contains a statement of the Law Faculty of Vienna University, as requested by the Austrian Federal Chancellory, regarding the Chancellor's spring 2012 draft amendment to the Austrian Law on National Minorities. Its author commences by expressing regret that the draft proposal which had been presented by a group of experts on behalf of the Austrian Centre for Ethnic Groups in 2009 had hardly been considered by the Chancellory. The statement then deals with those areas which were going to be altered in the course of amending the Law on National Minorities, namely the general provisions (definition of "Volksgruppe", general aims), the reform of the Ethnic Group Advisory Councils, the creation of a Forum of Ethnic Group Advisory Concils and the "recommendations" in the area of bilingual topography and the official languages, combined with fiscal support for national minorities.

  • Entwicklung und Perspektiven der Selbstverwaltung Kataloniens
    • Authors: Hèctor López Bofill
      Pages: 107 - 113
      Abstract: Summary A new and controversial statute of autonomy entered into force in Catalonia in August 2006. In June 2010, the Spanish Constitutional Court nullified 14 provisions of this new Catalonian autonomy Statute and construed another 27 provisions in accordance with the Constitution. This article is a survey of the most important aspects of the Court decision and an evaluation of its consequences for the future development of Catalonia's autonomy.

      Pages: 114 - 124
      Abstract: Summary This article deals with the controversial issue of the role the German minority in Vojvodina played during the time of German occupation in Yugoslavia beginning in 1941. The author opposes with historian Thomas Casagrande's assessment of this role expressed in both his book "Die Volksdeutsche SS-Division 'Prinz Eugen' – Die Banater Schwaben und die nationalsozialistischen Kriegsverbrechen" ("The 'Volksdeutsche' SS-division 'Prince Eugen' – The Banat Swabians and the National Socialist war crimes"), published in 2003, and a paper on the "disappearance of the German-speaking minority" in Yugoslavia, presented in March 2012 at an international historical conference in Bad Radkersburg (Steiermark, Austria). The author consciously presents the perspective not only of a historian, but also of a contemporary witness and comes to the conclusion that Casagrande's assessments are "unjust", "one-sided" and "far from reality".

  • “Last among equals”: Irish Travellers and change in the 21st
           century
    • Authors: Ronnie G. Moore
      Pages: 27 - 40
      Abstract: Abstract The case of Irish Travellers presents a particular challenge to Travellers and to policy and health officials reinforcing the distinctive and unique needs of a vulnerable section of the population. Travellers pride themselves on being private and self-supporting. However, traditional support structures and networks have eroded and now tend to be extremely limiting as Travellers have become increasingly polarised in modernity. Traditional skills that Travellers relied on and survived with have also largely gone, causing increased hardship, and deprivation. This has had implications not only for Traveller culture but also for their health and health chances.
