The 19th Annual Meeting of the Hungarian Political Science Association - Central Europe: Cooperation and Competition
Panel section “Minority politics”
May 30-June 1, 2013, Cluj-Napoca (Kolozsvár), Romania, Babes-Bolyai U
Each year, the most significant event of the Hungarian Political Science Association is its annual meeting, which this year, for the first time in the Association’s history, will take place outside the borders of Hungary, in Cluj-Napoca (Kolozsvár). Partly as a consequence of this, and also connected to the Year of Central Europe in Hungarian diplomacy, the title and the theme of the meeting will focus on a geographical region, Central Europe, broadly conceived.
Honoring the location and the theme of the meeting, we would like to give an opportunity to researchers from the countries of East Central Europe to present their most recent work, designating several sections as bilingual (English and Hungarian).
This call for papers concerns the thematic section of the conference entitled “Minority politics”. This section addresses the domain of ethnopolitics and policies targeting historical ethnic and national minorities, focusing on one hand on the legal and institutional aspects of the various ethnopolitical models, and on the other hand on their political and social consequences. Given the character and location of the conference, special attention will be paid to the Hungarian minorities residing in the states neighboring Hungary, but presentations about analogous cases from other parts of the world are equally welcome.
A. Ethnopolitics and policies directed to minorities
• The minority policies of host-states
• The policies of kin-states directed to their ethnic kin communities living in other states
B. Ethnic mobilization
• The political participation of minorities
• Ethnic parties and the voting behavior of minorities
The section will proceed in Hungarian and English. The organizers are able to cover the registration fee of a limited number of participants.
Applicants are asked to submit to the panel chair an abstract (300 words) and a brief CV until May 10, 2013. For more information about the conference in general, please visit the official website http://mptt.ro/en/
