Set in the context of an ever-expanding European Union, this book examines whether we are moving towards an integrated regional system of legal provision for minorities. It illustrates the central tension between newer member states, many of which have a keen interest in seeing minority issues addressed, and established members, which remain extremely hesitant in committing themselves fully to a minority rights regime. With expert contributions from both academics and practitioners, this book analyses the issue of minority rights in Europe, from historical, institutional and practical perspectives, to build a holistic picture of the development, institutionalization and problems of legal provision for minorities. Addressing the past, present and future of the European minority rights regime, this volume is an essential companion for anyone with an interest in minority issues and/or EU expansion.
