In the frame of the nexus between old and new minorities, this research project engages with the concept of ´integrated society` with the aim to explore new and existing policy and normative frameworks to balance unity and diversity based on human and minority rights. Within the context of diversity governance and integrated societies, our research focuses on three different aspects: first, we build upon the existing  knowledge on the synergies between old and new minorities, especially in autonomous territories inhabited by historical groups, by looking at both the theoretical but especially the empirical synergies among old and new minority groups and common approaches to govern diversity. Second, we study accommodation measures as major tools to strengthen living together and tolerance: our major focus is to look at cases and decisions of supra-national judicial and non-judicial bodies emphasizing the proactive role of all actors involved, in particular national and international judges, public authorities, employers, school authorities, individuals, as both mediators and promoters of accommodation arrangements. Third, we engage on a critical analysis of common values (Art. 2 TEU), their relevance and their transmission for an integrated society looking at different perspectives, needs, interests and actors.
