Overview: National Minority, or Co-nation?
This chapter examines the post-1989 discourse on national minority and co-nation rights. It suggests that the foundation of the problem of national minorities in international law is found not in the issue of a definition but in the relation between national minorities and state nationalism. The chapter argues that in order to elucidate the problematic relationship between protection and national self-determination, one must problematise the discourse of national minority rights not solely in terms of international law, but also in terms of social idealism.
