New nation-states and national minorities


New nation-states and national minorities. Edited by: Danero Iglesias, Julien; Stojanovic, Nenad; Weinblum, Sharon (2013). Colchester: ECPR press.

Abstract

The twentieth century has seen the emergence of new states shaped on the classic nation-state model. What have been the implications for minorities in these new nation-states? How have minorities responded to nationalising processes generated by the state’s self-definition? In order to answer these two questions the book offers an innovative perspective on the complex interactions between national minorities and newly established nation-states.

Starting with a novel discussion by Rogers Brubaker of his concept of nationalising state, the authors of the book further examine this model by using a large array of diverse cases such as Moldova, Ukraine, Turkey, Malaysia and Israel. These contributions shed light on common trends in relation to state-building processes, citizenship, rights of national minorities and their mobilisation.

The original theoretical framework, combined with a comparative approach, challenges our understanding of these crucial issues.
