Decker, D. Christopher. Status of National Minorities Legal Digest: A
Thematic Look at Five National Laws. An ECMI Legal Advisory Project.
Flensburg: European Centre for Minority Issues, January 2005, 249 pp.
The five states' national laws that are included in this digest are only
on the subject of the status of national minorities. All of the states
in this digest have other legal instruments that address and/or
supplement the laws on the status of national minorities. Because this
digest is designed to assist the Government of Romania in drafting its
law on the status of national minorities, only similar laws have been
included. The five Southern and Eastern European states law's on the
status of national minorities included in the digest are Croatia, Czech
Republic, Hungary, Serbia and Montenegro, and the Ukraine. In the
introductory sections reference is made to other laws of the five states
that make up their legal framework for the protection of national
minorities. These references are not exhaustive and are meant to
demonstrate that the laws on the status of national minorities that
these states have enacted do not exist by themselves, but form an
integral part of the overall protection scheme.
This digest was requested by the Department of Inter-Ethnic Relations of
the Romanian Government in anticipation of their drafting a law on the
status of national minorities. ECMI gratefully acknowledges the generous
support of the digest by the Global Conflict Prevention Fund of the
British Foreign and Commonwealth
