Minority rights and minority protection in Europe have traditionally been studied in history and law. Minority existence as we know it from the last five hundred years of European history has thus been seen through the lens of European international law and minority issues have been studied as issues between states. In the late twentieth century, when minority protection was at the top of the international agenda as a result of the conflicts in the Balkans and the forming of new states after the Cold War, the scope of minority studies expanded to include minority protection within states. This coincided with minority rights becoming subsumed by the human rights regime. However, any attempt to study human rights as an international regime did not refer to minority rights. The academic study of minority rights as an international regime only began with the publication by Jennifer Jackson Preece of National Minorities and the European-Nation States’ System in 1998. Since then, there have been a few studies addressing minority rights as a regime from an international relations perspective. However, none have addressed the effectiveness of the regime. This next logical step in the development of a coherent understanding of minority rights
