The European Yearbook of Minority Issues is a peer-reviewed publication
that provides a critical and timely review of contemporary developments
in minority-majority relations in Europe at a high scholarly level. It
combines analysis, commentary and documentation in relation to diversity
and conflict management, international and domestic legal developments,
as well as political and social changes and trends affecting minorities
in Europe. Apart from providing a unique annual overview of minority
issues for both scholars and practitioners in this field, the Yearbook
will be an indispensable reference tool for libraries, research
institute as well as governments and international organizations.
