Special Focus - Equal Opportunities for National Minorities: Theory and Practice

As 2007 has been designated by the EU as the Year of Equal Opportunities for All, the focus of this issue is on strategies within the EU and in its immediate neighbourhood to promote equality of opportunities for members of autochthonous national and ethnic minorities. Within the EU, the aim is to analyse the impact on members of national minorities of EU policies to tackle social exclusion. Beyond the EU’s borders, the focus is on how effective neighbouring countries have been in designing and implementing anti-discrimination policies as they prepare for closer integration with the EU and the extent to which such policies are directed at members of national minorities. Overall, the contributions to this Special Focus tackle two cross-cutting themes: equal opportunities for members of national minorities in political participation and equal economic opportunities.
