The Slovak Minority in Hungary - new TARKI report in the ENRI-EAST project

TARKI’s report gives a comprehensive overview about the Slovak minority in Hungary. The report summarizes Hungarian and Slovakian minority relations, the main findings of the ENRI-VIS survey and includes all biographical interviews.

ENRI-East is a research project implemented in 2008-2011 and primarily funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Program. This international and inter-disciplinary study is aimed at a deeper understanding of the ways in which the modern European identities and regional cultures are formed in the Eastern part of the European continent.

ENRI-East addresses four general research themes. The first concerns the interplay of identities and cultures by comparing "mother nations" and their "residual groups abroad". The second theme takes a cross-cutting approach, which addresses nations and the states; namely, the attitudes and policies of "mother nations" and "host nations" towards "residual groups" and vice versa. The third research theme comprises the reality of self-organization and representation of “residual groups abroad” (ethnic minorities) along the East European borderland. The last theme of the project deals with path dependencies, historical memories, present status and expected dynamics of divided nations in Eastern Europe.
