Governance provides a comprehensive overview and critical analysis of minority protection through national constitutional law and international law in Europe. Using a critical theoretical and methodological approach, this textbook provides a historical analysis of state formation and nation building in Europe, provides a sociologically informed political theory for how to reconcile the functional prerequisites for political unity, legal equality and social cohesion with the preservation of cultural diversity; examines the liberal and nationalist ideological framing of minority protection in liberal-democratic regimes and analyses the ongoing trend of re-nationalisation in Europe. Eleven legal and political scientists from Eurac Research and the University of Graz contributed to the textbook.
