Institutionalizing Shared Sovereignty: South Tyrol as a Model for Indiaâ€™s North East?
South Tyrol in Italy has been showcased as a model of shared sovereignty with the potential of being â€˜exportedâ€™ to other parts of the world. The model essentially consists in (a) a realization that the population of South Tyrol is highly multinational comprising the Germans, the Italians and the Ladins â€“ the latter mainly concentrated in the Ladin valley - and (b) they must be represented in the public offices exactly in terms of their respective percentages in the total population in the province and (c) the languages of these three groups will be recognized in education, in public services etc. Can the South Tyrol experience offer useful insights to India's problems in responding to the problem of minorities?
