This chapter considers the influence of the national minority discourse on the politics of democratisation. It analyses relevant texts produced within the Council of Europe that preceded the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities (FCNM) and identifies issues which might have contributed to dislocation or destabilisation of the politics of democratisation. The chapter examines the concept of state sovereignty by subjecting it to a late-modern discursive analysis that questions the feasibility of setting boundaries in a globalising world.

Keywords:   national minority discourse, democratisation, Council of Europe, FCNM, state sovereignty, discursive analysis, boundaries, globalising world
