Stéphane Pierré-Caps

The Plural Nation The Future of Central and Eastern European Minorities Publication date : March 1, 1995

To the national question in Central Europe, institutional and political solutions suggested by Western Europe are simply inapplicable: copied from the French model of the nation-state, they are impossible to set up given the mingling of nationalities in the Balkans.Inspiring himself from this particular historical experience, Stéphane Pierré-Caps describes a new pattern of political organization: a multination model, capable of reconciling national and cultural aspirations with state loyalty.
