Minorities and Democracy in Northern Europe
Kajsaniemigatan 9, Helsingfors, Finland
Ethnic and linguistic minorities constitute an integral part of European diversity. With the rise of radical populist parties on both the political left and political right this diversity is increasingly questioned. How are the minority groups in the Baltic Sea region of Northern Europe tackling the current political climate? What are the chances for minority groups to have a voice in today’s Europe? What kind of minority protection is necessary for a functioning European democracy?
