This document is the report of a seminar convened for European teachers on the subject of the nationalities question. The conference was held in the wake of drastic changes that came with the collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe. Participants focused on the nationality and border issues that arose from the treaties that ended World War I. The purpose of the discussions was to clarify the circumstances that largely determined the configuration of Europe that the rupture of the Soviet bloc was challenging. Following an introduction and a review of terminology, the document addresses: (1) "Nationalities and the Disappearance of the Great European Empires"; (2) "Two Victims of Contemporary History: Albania and Lithuania"; (3) "Nationalism in the Various Components of Belgium"; (4)"The Council of Europe and National Minorities"; and (5) "Conclusions."
