seminar
The seminar gives and overall picture of ethnic and national minorities of these two regions. After an introductory theoretical part on interpretations of the very terms and typology of minorities as such, it looks over the system of international protection of minorities (conceptions, legislation and tendencies), followed by an analyses of past and recent similar efforts of Hungarian administrations toward Hungarians living in the neighborous countries and more detailed reports on these Hungarian communities. In the second part of the semester it gives a global picture on minority rights and minorities in Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Kosovo and Romania as well as on ethnic structure and ethnic rights in Bosnia and Hercegovina. The last two topics are Jews and Gypsies of these regions.
