Minorities in Central and Eastern Europe. A Secondary Education for Europe Series.
This monograph, published as part of the project "A Secondary Education for Europe," makes no claim to deal with all the questions relating to minorities, from either the legal point of view of that of international action. The paper does not aim to suggest recommendations on a theme which has concerned the Council of Europe for years. The approach adopted here is a descriptive overview of the reality of minorities as they appear in 1993 in their territorial dimension. It is an inventory, as up to date as possible, with emphasis on the changes that have taken place since 1989-90. Chapters include: (1) "Problems of Minorities, Old and New"; (2) "Minorities in the Northern Part of Central and Eastern Europe [including] Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, and Hungary"; (3)"Minorities in the Southern Part of Central and Eastern Europe [including] Albania, Bulgaria, Romania, Moldova, and the Gypsies (Rom): A Special Case"; (4) "Case Study: The Magyhar Minorities"; (5) "The Approaches Advocated by the Major European Institutions"; and (6) "Conclusions." An appendix contains "Population map of central and eastern Europe and statistics according to the latest assessments." (EH)
