The Protection of Minorities in the Wider Europe / Edition 1by M. Weller
Pub. Date: 10/01/2008
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan UK
This book examines whether we are moving towards an integrated regional system of legal provision for minorities. It illustrates the tension between newer member states, many of which have an interest in seeing minority issues addressed, and established members, which remain hesitant in committing themselves fully to a minority rights regime.
