European Yearbook of Minority Issues (EYMI)

The European Yearbook of Minority Issues provides a critical and timely review of contemporary developments in minority-majority relations in Europe and beyond. It combines analysis, commentary and documentation in relation to conflict management, international legal developments and domestic legislation affecting minorities in Europe.

Apart from providing a unique annual overview of minority issues for both scholars and practitioners in this field, the Yearbook is an indispensable reference tool for libraries, research institutes as well as governments and international organizations.

Since 2001, the Institute for Minority Rights of Eurac Research has edited the European Yearbook in collaboration with the European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI) in Flensburg, Germany. From Volume 14 (2015) onwards, the Yearbook has a new structure and 4 new partners: Åbo Akademi University, Babes-Blolyai University, Hungarian Academy of Science, and University of Glasgow.

The Yearbook contains four sections:

  1. Thematic Articles: This section contains scholarly articles that study, appraise, critique and reconsider specific issues and trends in Minority Studies that have emerged or developed further within the 12 months covered
  2. International Developments: This section features articles that cover relevant minority issues and their developments within the Council of Europe instruments (FCNM, ECRML, ECtHR, ECRI), the OSCE (HCNM, Media), the UN (Rapporteur, Forum, CERD, Committee and Council) and other European instruments.
  3. National Developments: This section contains articles that describe and analyse new initiatives, events, situations, happenings, etc. that have emerged in specific countries within the 12 month period covered by the volume.
  4. Book Reviews: This section features reviews that introduce and critique new, relevant literature within the disciplines of the social sciences, humanities and law.

Publication policy

The European Yearbook of Minority Issues has a double blind peer-review policy, and thus, guarantees high quality standard articles.

It is published by Brill Academic Publishers as a hard copy collection, and, since 2012 single articles are also online available.
