Policies of Ethno-cultural Diversity Management in Belarus, Moldova and Ukraine: between Soviet Legacies and European Standards is a prime example of how the European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI) approaches minority protection issues through an interdisciplinary lens.
Written by Mikalai Biaspamiatnykh, ECMI Senior Research Associate Dr. Alexander Osipov, Ihar Pushkin, Federica Prina and ECMI Project Research Associate Hanna Vasilevich, this collective volume (Russian with English summaries) looks closely at the Soviet legacy in Belarus, Moldova and Ukraine, and presents interdisciplinary analysis on diversity management.
Also examined is the character of this legacy in interplay with the minority protection approaches of the European Union, Council of Europe, and the OSCE.
The book demonstrates how the ECMI researchers collaborate with scholars from various other institutes dealing with specific aspects of minority issues. This edition reflects the results of a research project conducted in 2012-2013 under the supervision of Dr. Mikalai Biaspamiatnykh from Yanka Kupala State University of Hrodna, the support of the Centre for Advanced Studies and Education (CASE) at the European Humanities University of Vilnius, and the European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI).
