It focuses on the development of the South Tyrol autonomy regarding various topics; my contribution addresses the impact of Europeanization on European minorities, granting special attention to how such processes may impact the situation in South Tyrol and the planned ‘Autonomy Convent’.
My interview on the roles and perceptions of ‘old’ and ‘new’ minorities with the Rai Sender Bozen Minority Magazine, MINET, was aired on March 11 2015. The full MINET TV episode is now available online (click here). The interview is the last segment of the magazine, starts at around 23:00 mins.
I will be taking part in a workshop on “Protecting and Including ‘New’ and ‘Old’ Minorities: Opportunities, Challenges, Synergies” at the European Academy Bozen/Bolzano on February 27th.
The paper I will be presenting is titled “‘Old’ vs. ‘New’ Minorities – An Identity-Based Approach to the Distinction Between Autochthonous and Immigrant Minorities”, and I am looking forward to a very interesting and varied discussion with researchers from different countries as featured in the workshop program.
