Release: Jubilee edition of the Convivenza publication series

 

In December 2018, the jubilee edition of the Convivenza publication series, volume 5, was published 

With the kind support of the Directorate of International Law of the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs

There are virtually no politically motivated conflicts today that are not affected by disagreements among minorities and majorities. The contributions in this book form a kaleidoscope of views, opinions and scientific reflections. They provide a comprehensive and up to date overview of the complexity of the task of minority protection in Switzerland and worldwide. 

Es gibt heute kaum einen politisch motivierten Konflikt, der nicht aus Meinungsverschiedenheiten zwischen Minderheiten und Mehrheiten hervorgeht. Das vorliegende Buch ist ein Kaleidoskop von Ansichten, Meinungen und wissenschaftlichen Abhandlungen zum Thema. Das Werk erlaubt einen aktuellen und umfassenden Überblick über die Komplexität des Minderheitenschutzes in der Schweiz und weltweit.
