  • Bridging National and Ethnic Borders: The European Grouping of Territorial
           Cooperation as a Space for Minorities
    • Authors: Alice Engl; Johanna Mitterhofer
      First page: 1
      Abstract: Source: Volume 12, Issue 1, pp 1 - 32This article investigates territorial cooperation as an instrument that may help to link the two central objectives of the Council of Europe and the European Union: strengthening integration and cohesion, while encouraging and safeguarding diversity. Drawing on studies on minority protection and diversity management as well as on European integration, the authors examine the impact of regional development policies and strategies, in particular territorial cooperation, on minorities, on the one hand, and the importance of minorities for these policies on the other hand. The article focuses on the European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation (EGTC) as concrete policy instrument to promote territorial cooperation, studying its practical implementation on the Austrian-Italian border.

  • National Minorities and the Crisis of National Minorities and the Crisis
    • Authors: Andreea Udrea
      First page: 33
      Abstract: Source: Volume 12, Issue 1, pp 33 - 55This article discusses the retreat from multiculturalism in Europe. It questions whether the crisis of multiculturalism has had any impact on the accommodation of national minorities and/or ethnic groups. It opens with an interview with the former OSCE High Commissioner on National Minorities, Knut Vollebaek, which is followed by commentaries of four leading scholars: Will Kymlicka, Keith Banting, Tariq Modood and Jennifer Jackson-Preece. Ambassador Vollebaek argues that the crisis of multiculturalism only affects immigrants, and although the rights of national minorities are well protected, it may eventually undermine these rights. In their commentary, Kymlicka and Banting disagree with the view that the backlash against immigration threatens the rights of national minorities. Ambassador Vollebaek also supports the view that more inclusive policies targeting the members of minority groups are necessary. Modood and Jackson-Preece agree, and in their responses discuss how current arrangements could be modified or expanded to become more inclusive.

  • Societal Security in South Tyrol: A Model to Deal with Ethnic Conflicts
    • Authors: Andrea Carlà
      First page: 56
      Abstract: Source: Volume 12, Issue 1, pp 56 - 93South Tyrol has been referred to as a model to deal with ethnic diversity and resolving ethnic conflicts. This article explains the South Tyrol model’s success by blending ethnic politics with concepts from security studies: societal security and securitization. Societal security refers to threats that emerge from the fact that humans belong to communal groups that do not correspond to defined state borders. Securitization is the process by which an issue is considered as an existential threat that requires emergency measures. The article develops a framework to identify which dynamics made South Tyrol successful, analyzing factors that sparked security concerns and processes of securitization and highlighting actions and measures that tackled these dynamics. Concurrently, South Tyrol is used as an empirical case to expand our understanding of societal security and elaborate (and test) a detailed toolkit to prevent or dissolve the violent mobilization of ethnic diversity and societal security threats.

  • Romania’s Kin-state Policies after 2007: The Nature and Challenges of
           Its Trans-domestic Obligations
    • Authors: Andreea Udrea
      First page: 95
      Abstract: Source: Volume 12, Issue 1, pp 95 - 121This article examines Romania’s kin-state policies after it became an EU member state in 2007. After 2007, Romania expanded its kin-state obligations and strengthened its kin-state role. First, the article discusses the current understanding of its kin-state responsibility. And second, by examining the grounds, subject and scope of Romania’s policies, and evaluating the limits of its kin-state responsibility against dominant liberal views on reparations for historical injustice and state support for culture, the article shows that Romania’s kin-state policies remain highly discretionary and raise important questions over its liberal commitments within and beyond its borders.

  • The Protection of Lithuania’s Polish Minority: Bone of Contention in
           Bilateral Polish-Lithuanian Relations
    • Authors: Elżbieta Kuzborska
      First page: 122
      Abstract: Source: Volume 12, Issue 1, pp 122 - 157This article provides an overview of the recent political and legal events surrounding the protection of Lithuania’s Polish national minority in the context of Lithuanian–Polish bilateral relations, focusing particularly on what has occurred since the so-called golden age of relations between the two countries. This article aims to present up-to-date information on the current stage of dialogue on the issue of national minorities in Lithuania and on the actual protection of the Polish minority in this country. After the expiration of the Law on national minorities in Lithuania in 2010, the primary bones of contention between the two countries have been the use of the language of minorities in communication with local authorities and in bilingual topographical signs, the use of names and surnames in a minority language, rights related to the education of national minorities, and rights related to political participation of national minorities.

  • Hungarians in Slovakia and the Evolution of Hungarian–Slovakian
           Bilateral Relations—Improvement or Stalemate?
    • Authors: János Fiala-Butora
      First page: 158
      Abstract: Source: Volume 12, Issue 1, pp 158 - 196This article analyses developments in Hungarian–Slovakian bilateral relations since the new Slovak government took office in 2012 and the countries’ governments developed friendly relations. Analysis shows it is too early to discuss a turning point in bilateral relations. Underlying problems can erupt into conflict. An overview of serious issues shows they are almost exclusively related to minority rights. Improvement cannot be expected without eliminating the sources of minorities’ dissatisfaction. Analysis of meetings, especially of the Slovakian–Hungarian Joint Commission for the Issues of Minorities, shows that despite the parties’ intentions to improve their relationship they were unable to solve issues requiring policy change. To some extent, the approach to preventing conflicts is part of the obstacle to harmonious Slovakian–Hungarian relations. Not all conflicts are the same: those that result in solving contentious issues are necessary to achieve long-term stability. The bilateral approach’s usefulness should be evaluated considering this differentiation.

  • Case-Law of the European Court of Human Rights Concerning the Protection
           of Minorities, July 2012 to August 2014
    • Authors: Bill Bowring
      First page: 197
      Abstract: Source: Volume 12, Issue 1, pp 197 - 222This article highlights a number of interesting and significant cases concerning minority rights at the Strasbourg Court during the recent period of just over two years. The issues include the continuing deadlock in enforcing the Court’s controversial antidiscrimination judgment in Sejdic and Finci v. Bosnia and Herzegovina; a new emphasis on and attention to social and economic rights as protected by the Revised Social Charter in the context of forced evictions; the Court’s expanding jurisprudence on the positive duties of the state; the fascinating Slovenian case on the fate of the “erased;” and a continuing focus on discrimination against Chechens as part of the Court’s recent return to a focus on the long-neglected Article 14 of the Convention. The article concludes by summarising a new scholarly interpretation of minority rights through the concept of vulnerability.

  • Minority-Related Activities in the United Nations System in 2013
    • Authors: Sally Holt; Rajiv Jebodh Jeremie Gilbert
      First page: 280
      Abstract: Source: Volume 12, Issue 1, pp 280 - 314In reviewing the activities of relevant UN human rights institutions, bodies and mechanisms, this chapter identifies and examines some of the main issues that emerged regarding minority rights in the year 2013. It notably analyses how the UN has focused particular attention on the situation and the rights of religious minorities, as well as on the elaboration of the post-2015 development agenda. The article also reviews activities in other issue areas that are important for minorities, such as language, education, combatting racism, hatred and intolerance, and the prevention of genocide and mass atrocities. It highlights developments with regard to specific groups such as Roma, people living with albinism and Dalits. It also examines some of the urgent situations that have arisen from conflicts which have targeted minorities across the globe.

  • Teaching in and Studying Minority Languages in Turkey: A Brief Overview of
           Current Issues and Minority Schools
    • Authors: Nurcan Kaya
      First page: 315
      Abstract: Source: Volume 12, Issue 1, pp 315 - 338Turkey is a nation–state built on remnants of the Ottoman Empire where non-Muslim minorities were guaranteed the right to set up educational institutions; however, since its establishment, it has officially recognised only Armenians, Greeks and Jews as minorities and guaranteed them the right to manage educational institutions as enshrined in the Treaty of Lausanne. However, they have faced bureaucratic restrictions and discriminatory practises. Turkey’s EU accession triggered developments toward democratisation, including in minority rights. Private language teaching courses teach ‘traditionally used languages’, elective language courses have been introduced in public schools and universities are allowed to teach minority languages. However, there is still a long way to reach EU standards. This article assesses existing legal frameworks in regard to the teaching in and studying of minority languages and their implementation. It covers developments since the EU accession process began and provides an overview of current issues and minority schools.

  • One Step Forward, Two Steps Back? Reflections on the Recent Attempts to
           Reform the Austrian National Minorities Act of 1976
    • Authors: Jürgen Pirker
      First page: 339
      Abstract: Source: Volume 12, Issue 1, pp 339 - 352From 2009 to 2012, the Austrian federal government conducted a political process to modernize the national legal framework for minority protection to support national minorities and further promote the linguistic and cultural diversity of Austria. A final draft for an amendment to the National Minorities Act of 1976 suggested reforming its legal terms with regard to a “modern and pluralistic society” and reconfiguring the National Minority Advisory Councils to the federal government (Volksgruppenbeiräte) following a “civil society-model” (zivilgesellschaftliches Modell). This article focuses on the implications and consequences of this intention.

This article discusses the aspects of the Czech minority-related legislation within the context of this decision.
