Second Public Lecture by Vassilis Petsinis
20.11.2015 @ 18:00 - 20:00
On November 20, 2015 Vassilis Petsinis made second public lecture on Ethnic relations, the EU, and geopolitical implications as guest of Human and Social Studies Foundation – Sofia in the frame of the project Civic practice for students and teachers. Post 2011 protests, funded by the NGO Programme in Bulgaria under the European Economic Area Financial Mechanism 2009-2014 (www.ngogrants.bg), facilitator was Tom June.
Petsinis made a comparison between the patterns for managing ethnic relations in Croatia and Estonia within the context of the EU’s eastward enlargement. It sets in context how internal and external actors impact upon the management of ethnic relations in both states. Systemic transformation has generated the circumstances towards the formulation of a consistent and extensive legislation on minority rights in Croatia. Meanwhile, in Estonia, the emphasis on national survival and safeguarding the ‘Estonian’ character of the republic has halted more substantial developments despite the state of social stability.
