Abstract

The origin and nature of the Lund Recommendations on the Effective Participation of National Minorities in Public Life John Packer1 I. Introduction The purpose of this article is to provide some explanation about the origin of the Lund Recommendations on the Effective Participation of National Minorities in Public Life, the process of their elaboration, and their nature as a tool with which to address inter-ethnic relations within the democratic State. It is not the intention of this article to provide analytical interpretation of the recommendations: they stand alone, here appended with their own explanatory note. Still, with a view to situating them in context, this article provides an historical record of the nascence and early evolution of the Lund Recommendations. Following some initial conceptual remarks, an essentially chronological account of the pre-history and subsequent public reception and use of the Lund Recommendations is supplemented with some brief comments on their structure and content. In keeping with the spirit with which the Lund Recommendations were elaborated, readers are invited to make of them what they will simply by reading the Recommendations and considering their possible applications. The Lund Recommendations were elaborated at the request of the OSCE High Commissioner
