Regions, Minorities and European Integration

The papers collected in this issue, which represent only a fraction of those produced in the project show unambiguously that, while Europe creates a better quality framework for relations between minorities and majorities, Europe does not fundamentally alter the behavior of actors. The game played is still undoubtedly modern, as its main stakes are identity and sovereignty. Actors learn to use postmodern Europe and its neutral policies to advance their very modern causes; states, regions and minorities are equal in this respect. The ball might be different, the game is the same. Europe is not the brave new world of utopists, but still the old modern world in new, better clothes. Fortunately.
