ECMI seminar on Minority Protection Regime has started on 26 October 2015. The seminar is run by ECMI Director Prof. Dr. Tove Malloy together with the ECMI team as part of the curriculum at MA European Studies Programme of the Europa-Universität Flensburg.
The major aim of this seminar is to provide students with in-depth knowledge and robust skills on the basis of which to develop an informed understanding of minority issues in the 21st Century. The approach of the Seminar is multi-disciplinary. Minority issues will be examined from the perspectives of political science and law, including international human rights law and international relations studies, political theory, political sociology and cultural studies. The Seminar will familiarize students with critical and post-structural methods of analysis through the reading and discussion of key texts.
On the first day of the seminar Prof. Malloy introduced to the students the seminar contents: what does minority protection regime envision, what are the primary discourses within the protection regime and how the seminar will be structured. The seminar will be taught jointly by ECMI senior and junior staff, as well as affiliated non-resident experts and will involve formal and non-formal education methods.
The seminar is part of the successful cooperation between the ECMI and the Europa-Universität Flensburg.
