This course examines the concepts of minority, migrants, and groups resulting from migrations, racism and racial discriminations, on the basis of case studies in “old” and “new” Europe. Thus, the course will focus upon features of minority/migrant rights claims related to the European construction. Special attention will be paid to the new instruments for the protection of minorities such as the Framework Convention of Council of Europe. We will analyze case studies in minority/majority and minority/state relations such as: multiculturalism and integration, discrimination against minorities and migrants, religious and ethnic tensions in Europe.
