The project “Rethinking Minority and Migration Policies in Central Europe. Clash of Ethnic Particularism and Liberal Universalism“ attempts to revisit and reconstruct minority and migrant policies in Central European countries. Project focuses on structural conditions for shift in minority and migrants policies in countries of the Central Europe toward the multicultural ones that will enable full accommodation and incorporation of minorities and migrants. Project intends to analyze pre-conditions of shift from ethno-cultural to legal-political definition of a nation, potential for redefinition of the core solidarity based on ethnicity to core solidarity based on modern citizenship. By analyzing particular programs, strategies, and policies of Central European countries project intends to emphasize the ways how to reconcile two antagonistic principles that accompany modern states since the dawn of modernity – liberal universalism promising equal treatment for all and ethnic particularism that favors one group based on tribal pre-modern thinking.
