Első borító
LIT Verlag Münster, 2006 - 342 oldal

This volume presents research on intercultural relations in southeastern Europe, including the way they are imagined and managed in different social and historical contexts. After an introductory critique of the concepts of interculturalism and citizenship, the situation in Romania is investigated. The second part deals with a series of in-depth comparative studies, namely on the Roma minorities in Romania and Bulgaria. It also considers the case of the Pomaks in Bulgaria, of Russians living in parallel societies in the Baltic States, and the recent evolution of interculturalism in the region.

Franois Regg is a researcher at the Department of Anthropology at the University of Freiburg (Switzerland). Rudolf Poledna is a researcher at the Babes-Bolyai-University Cluj-Napoca (Romania). Calin Rus is chair of the Communications and Public Relations Department at the Babes-Bolyai-University, Cluj-Napoca.
