Item description for Minority Rights in the 'New' Europe by Peter Cumper...
This collection of essays examines the legal regime in the post-Cold War era which has developed in response to the demands of ethnic, racial and religious groups in Europe. In essence this volume seeks to examine the`old' problem of national minorities in the `new' Europe. The essays examine the response of the main institutions within Europe (i.e. the Council of Europe, OSCE and European Union), the increasing recourse of states to bilateral arrangements, the developing content of minority rights, the challenges posed by state-building and the resolution of conflicts involving national minorities. Particular issues considered include the minorities situation in the Former Yugoslavia, Ukraine (in particular in Crimea), the position of the minority Catholic population in Northern Ireland, as well as developments in the context of autonomous regimes and power-sharing arrangements. At the end of the book, a collection of documents, which supplement these chapters and are relevant to minority rights in the `New' Europe, can be found. Whilst the book's editors are both legal academics from the British Isles, the contributors' backgrounds are diverse and varied, originating from a number of different countries, with expertise in a wide variety of areas.
