Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on three major evolutions taking place in the last five years. The first one is related to the legal regime of the kin-State involvement in minority protection, the second refers to the recent re-start of the scientific debate on the concept of "nation", and the third concerns the issue of extending the minority protection regime to non-citizens. The term "kin-State" is defined by the European Commission for Democracy through Law as the State having a corresponding minority group residing abroad, a group possessing the same ethnic background as its majority population, and "playing a role in the protection and preservation" of this minority, "aiming at ensuring that its genuine linguistic and cultural links remain strong".

Keywords: European Commission; international law; kin-State; minority protection; national minorities; non-citizens
