Abstract

It is a great pleasure for the editorial team to present the second volume of the European Yearbook of Minority Issues. We very much hope that also this volume will come up to the high expectations of our readership. It was a demanding challenge again to keep our promise of providing a timely review of contemporary developments in minority-majority relations in Europe. Europe, in our understanding, does not comprise only the (present and future) member states of the European Union. Without claiming to be exhaustive, the articles and reports included in this Yearbook analyze the situation of minorities in the different parts of Europe, from Germany and the United Kingdom to Transdniestria and Chechnya, and from the Baltic states to Turkey and Cyprus. In the section on international developments much care was taken to ensure continuity of reporting on the most relevant European but also universal mechanisms for the pro- tection of national minorities. Moreover, to the instruments analyzed in the first volume reviews of the developments in the field of the European Charter for Regional or Minor- ity Languages and the activities of the Commissioner for Human Rights of the Council of Europe were added in this
