Project implementation period: 2017

This international conference took place in Trieste on Friday, 17 June 2016 and focused on political participation and self-governance models of ethnic minorities in CEI member states. The topics of discussion were: political representation models of ethnic minorities in electoral bodies and models governing the separation of powers; consultation mechanisms used by ethnic minorities; self-governance models of ethnic minorities, including political and civil society organisations; and the involvement of minorities in cross-border cooperation policies and programmes. The conference saw the participation of representatives of academic institutions, research institutes and ethnic minorities from ten CEI countries: Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Italy, Hungary, Macedonia, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Serbia. This event was an opportunity to carry out a review and joint assessment of the state of affairs in relation to the topics of focus and exchange best practices.

In 2017, the conference papers were published in a special edition of the publication Razprave in gradivo/Treaties and documents, which was published jointly with the Institute for Ethnic Studies. The Slovene Research Institute (SLORI) participated in the editorial process.
