The aim of the project has been to identify best practices of minority protection, while at the same time studying under which conditions such practices can function and under which circumstances the application of certain measures is not recommendable. This goal was reached by comparatively studying the real situation of autochthonous minorities in certain key areas, taking into consideration the respective social, cultural, historical, political and economic context. The situation in Austria, Italy, Slovenia, Hungary, Slovakia and Romania has been studied.

Main focus has been placed on the impact that the implementation of provisions for the protection of minorities have had on the interethnic living together, the mutual trust, the functioning of institutions and the interstate relations. This is shedding light on which impact an adequate minority protection system can have on the internal and external stability, economic prosperity and the lived cultural diversity within a state.
