Ethnized Minorities as Impulse for State-Civil Integration

doc. PhDr. Radim Marada, Ph.D.

The project examines the basic coordinates of state-civil inclusion of ethnized minorities in conditions of late-modern western societies and globalizing trends. Specific historical conditions, which are taken into account, are especially weakening processes of integrative potential of national states and growing mobility of people and information. The project compares identificational potential of civic-nationally defined collectivities to other suggestions of social and cultural inclusion. In this context a special attention is paid to intergenerational differences: 1. in the relation of major society to ethnically defined minorities (the question of human and collective rights), 2. in the possibilities and willingness of ethnized minorities to stat-civil integration, 3. in the approach to interstate migration and relationship of immigrants to the host countries.
