European Yearbook of Minority Issues

European Yearbook of Minority Issues, Volume 2 2002/2003 The European Yearbook of Minority Issues provides a critical and timely review of contemporary developments in minority-majority relations in Europe. It combines analysis, commentary and documentation in relation to conflict management, international legal developments and domestic legislation affecting minorities in Europe. Part I contains scholarly articles and, in 2002/3, features two special focus sections ('Belgium', 'New Minorities'), accompanied by a miscellaneous articles section. Part II reviews the implementation of minority legislation and international standards at the universal and regional levels as well as new developments in relation to them and contains a list of international norms. 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 institutes as well as governments and international organisations. The European Yearbook is edited in collaboration with the Minorities and Regional Autonomies Department of the European Academy Bozen/Bolzano. Volume 3 will appear in early 2005. General Editors Arie Bloed, Rainer Hofmann, Joseph Marko, James Mayall, John Packer, Hanna Suchocka, Marc Weller Managing Editors Volume 2 Alexander H.
