Dear colleagues,

Some of you might find the newly appeared book of interest "Minority
Integration in Central Eastern Europe. Between Ethnic Diversity and
Equality." Edited by Timofey Agarin and Malte Brosig Amsterdam/New York,
NY, 2009. 

The book presents a timely examination on a range of issues present in
the discussions on the integration of ethnic minorities in Central
Eastern Europe: norm setting, equality promotion, multiculturalism,
nation-building, social cohesion, and ethnic diversity. It insightfully
illustrates these debates by assessing them diachronically rather than
cross-nationally from the legal, political and anthropological
perspective. The contributors unpack concepts related to minority
integration, discuss progress in policy-implementation and scrutinize
the outcomes of minority integration in seven countries from the region.
The volume is divided into three sections taking a multi-variant
perspective on minority integration and equality. The volume starts with
an analysis of international organizations setting standards and
promoting minority rights norms on ethnic diversity and equal treatment.
The second and third sections address state policies that provide fora
for minority groups to participate in policy-making as well as the role
of society and its various actors their development and enactment of
integration concepts. The volume aims to assess the future of ethnic
diversity and equality in societies across Central Eastern European
