Special Focus

Equal Opportunities for National Minorities: Theory and Practice 

Authors: Gabriel von Toggenburg, Eben Friedman, Ulrike Schmidt, Jonathan
Wheatley and Adrian Zeqiri
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.
