Linguistic-cultural or religious autonomy and other forms of federal organization are particularly appropriate to promote the harmonious coexistence of peoples. When and in what ways is autonomy appropriate, though? These are the questions that Thomas Burri seeks to answer.

We learn from French Polynesia, a place about as remote from Europe as it gets – but nonetheless closer than expected – and from the German minority in Hungary, which has been drowsing in the oversize shadow of the Hungarian community abroad.
The book is a highly recommended read for all those involved in nation building or minority protection – or for those simply curious about what is going on beyond their own province. (Daniel Thürer)
