National Minority Rights in Europe

Tove H. Malloy

Oxford University Press

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.

Keywords:   national minority rights, co-nation rights, international law, national minorities, state nationalism, protection, national self-determination, social idealism
