The Hungarian minority question in Slovakia and Romania
With the redrawing of European borders following the First World War, some 5 million ethnic Hungarians were assigned minority status in neighboring countries that acquired lands formerly part of Greater Hungary. Discourse analysis of national constitutions reveal that policies toward minorities in Slovakia and Romania were particularly oppressive during the Soviet era, becoming more accommodating as EU accession neared. In this paper, I argue that national determinism, nationalism fueled by legacy, and the EU as a strong external force do not, on their own, hold explanatory power, rather, all factors taken together account for the ongoing struggle for social inclusion.
