Diversity Under Threat in Europe? Spotlight on Slavic and German minorities
On the situation of linguisitic minorities in Germany and Eastern Europe
Slavic Sorbs live in Germany and German-speaking groups in Eastern Europe, both with centuries-long histories. How are they seen by the majority societies in a time of renewed nationalist rhetoric? Are their languages and dialects dying out in the course of globalisation? What is their relationship with other minorities?
