EURAC's 2010 Summer School on Summer School on Human Rights, Minorities
and Diversity Management deals with the complexities of human and
minority rights and diversity management in Europe mainly through the
discussion of the international and interregional protection mechanisms
of the United Nations, the OSCE and the Council of Europe. Moreover, the
wide range of linguistic, educational and political rights to be found
in different national constitutional systems will be explored. A special
focus explores the concept of cultural diversity under EC law as gaining
more and more significance beyond the context of minority protection, as
well as the phenomena of immigration and social inclusion. The Summer
School will attempt to clarify what it is that forms the core of
European identity and whether this factor can overcome the
ethno-national legacies of the past. 

We offer not only an in-depth overview on human and minority rights but
also the possibility to discuss their implementation with international
leading academics, lawyers and practitioners from international

As a conclusion to the Summer School participants will participate in an
international conference presenting the final results of the research
project: Minority Protection in Central Europe (MIMI) (see
www.eurac.edu/mimi). Thus students will have the opportunity of engaging
in expert discussions about the implementation of minority rights and
its impact on those concerned. 

Applications online at www.eurac.edu/sumemrschool until April 1, 2010.

issues and therefore require both theoretical and practical training in

inter-disciplinary skills and to specialise within different aspects of
European integration and diversity; journalists and teachers interested

well as a model solution for minority protection. Hence EURAC is able to
provide exceptional theoretical and practical knowledge in the
examination and application of issues related to minority protection and
