Bolzano megyében a német ajkú kisebbség olyan összefüggő területi egységen él, amely elősegítette számára kisebbségi jogok kivívását és az autonómia kérdésének rendezését. A lakosság jelenlegi jóléte és a megye autonómiája azonban nem egyik pillanatról a másikra alakult ki, hanem évtizedek fejlődésének eredménye. Ez a fejlődés még napjainkban sem tekinthető lezártnak, sőt az európai integráció hatására folyamatosan változik. Érdemes megvizsgálni, hogyan alakult ki a jelenlegi állapot, és milyen jogi háttér biztosítja Olaszország e területén a német és a ladin nyelvi kisebbség önállóságát. Ebben fontos szerepet játszik a nyelvi kérdés is, amelyet a jogi terminológia tudatos kezelésével is igyekeznek támogatni. E vizsgálatok eredményei mintául szolgálhatnak a külföldön élő magyar kisebbség számára is.

This article deals with the problem of the religion of the ethnic Germans in Hungary. It is assumed that Catholicism serves as an important item of the ethnic identity of this minority from diachronic as well as from synchronic perspective. Catholic religion has the historic function to help the ethnic survival. Religion has a very important role to divide and to unite ethnic minorities and the majority. A great deal of the Germans settled in Hungary in the 18th century is Lutheran. Catholic and Lutheran Germans are divided by their religion, which can be seen at their marriage customs, too. Since the Hungarian majority is also Catholic, both Germans and Hungarians have the cult of the Blessed Virgin, who is held by the Hungarian believers as Patrona Hungarica. With the help of a shared religion with the majority, they could develop a basis for national feelings and for assimilation, too.
The paper analyzes ethnic data collection pertaining to criminal justice in Hungary. It shows that Hungary's approach to resist ethnic data collection by law enforcement authorities is not a good policy and it causes severe constitutional problems in other, non-criminal legal circumstances, where ethnic data is used in the context of additional rights and affirmative protection provided for ethno-national minorities. The paper follows a twofold analysis. First, it sets forth general problems relating to ethnic data collection, including a brief analysis of a uniquely Hungarian constitutional institution, the minority self-government structure. The focus of scrutiny then shifts to the criminal justice system, in particular the analysis of policing of racially motivated crime, and the question of police ethnic profiling.

Dunin Karwicki, J. Rybiński, A. Trzecieski Jr. P. Hulka-Laskowski was the only significant Calvinist writer in the 20th century.

“The Impact of 1956 on
the Hungarians of Transylvania”, provides a 50-year retrospective analysis of
the political consequences of the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 on the
Hungarians in neighboring Romania. It focuses on the inter-ethnic knock-on
effects in the Romanian Workers Party, the “Hungarian/Mures-Hungarian
Autonomous Region”of Transylvania, and the cultural institutions of the
Hungarian minority. It links these developments to present-day
Romanian-Hungarian relations, both on the interstate and the intrastate levels.
The Republic of Karelia is an
independent state of the Russian Federation. The Karels, the Veps and the
Russians are native people of the Republic of Karelia. According to the adopted
ethnological criteria the Karels and Veps are considered to be national minorities
of the Republic. Due to a longstanding tradition the Finns, including 5/6 of
the Inkeri Finns, are believed to be a national minority as well. In accordance
with the last census (1989) the national minorities made up only 13.1% of the
total number of the inhabitants of Karelia (the Karels - 10%; the Finns - 2.7%;
the Veps - 0.4%). Modern ethno-demographic situation in Karelia is considered
to be a critical one. The average age of the Karels, the Veps and the Finns
living there is higher than in the other ethnic groups. The process of
democratization in the Soviet society aroused the national factor in the former
Autonomous Republics. Ethnic minorities began to annouce infrigement of their
rights, started organizing national movements. National and cultural rebirth of
their peoples and first of all their languages appears to be the principle goal
of these national societies. But the Karelian language has no official status.
In 1991-1993 the writing of the Vepsians was restored. As for the Finnish language
it does not have a definite status yet. The “Programme of the language-cultural
rebirth and development of the Karels, Veps and Finns of the Republic of
Karelia” was adopted in 1995 by the Karelian Government. By the end of the
1990s two approaches to the national problems were determined. The first is
cultural (the development of languages and culture within national autonomy)
and the second is political (the advancement of political demands from
national-radical movements and organizations). But the stable political and
national situation in Karelia guarantees a favorable solution to the problems
of the ethno-cultural development of the Veps, Karels, Finns.
The interwar period was crucial for the development of Polish–Ukrainian relations in the following decades. Political commentaries, studies in linguistics, social sciences, and legislative acts from this period reflect the changes of Polish attitudes towards the Ukrainian minority. In the late 1920s and 1930s, the traditional and exonymic terminology Rusin and ruski was gradually replaced by the new forms Ukrainiec and ukraiński.
