With or without you: integrating migrants into the minority protection regime in hungary

In recent years, two crucial tendencies – the growing out-migration of the population to Western European countries and the continuous and increasing influx of immigrants and refugees to Hungary, a Schengen-zone country – have placed the issue of migration firmly on the Hungarian political agenda. However, little attention has been directed toward to the impact of migration processes on the composition of the thirteen officially recognized minorities. In addition to examining these issues, the present paper aims to evaluate how the most affected ‘old’ communities and official policies have tackled and responded to the challenges to the minority protection regime presented by the emergence of ‘new’ groups.
