Abstract

This is the third year of publication of the European Yearbook of Minority Issues. We have now had feedback, both informal and in the shape of scholarly reviews, in relation to the initial volumes. We are very pleased indeed to note that the Yearbook has been so well received, and that it is attracting increasing support from contributors and readers. The study of minority-majority relations is certainly not going out of fashion. However, the subject is becoming increasingly complex, as we move away from the simple con- cept of 'minority protection' to the broader study of means and mechanisms that can be adopted to accommodate diversity within and across states. One may also note the recent focus on security issues when considering diversity, including religious diversity - a trend one may not wish to leave without critical appraisal. The opening article of this volume sets the stage for a discussion of new approaches to the analysis of majority-minority relations. The General Editors have also emphasized this perspective when commissioning two special features sections, one considering the impact of Islam in Europe and the other investigating the economic dimension of effective participation of minorities in all aspects of life.
