Voting rights of minorities and the role of ethnicity in elections in the post-Yugoslav space


Dr Petra Roter has contributed a chapter to a newly published book on Electoral Rights in Europe: Advances and Challenges, edited by Helen Hardman and Brice Dickson, and just published by Routledge. The chapter, titled 'Voting rights of minorities and the role of ethnicity in elections in the post-Yugoslav space’ aims to address the human rights approach to elections in a particular issue-area – namely, in elections as they apply to persons belonging to national minorities. More specifically, the chapter seek to explore the relevance of ethnicity in elections. It puts forward an argument that the ethnic factor (i.e. ethnic identity of individuals) indeed plays a role in electoral processes, while analysing its significance for the human rights approach to elections in the context of the post-Yugoslav space.
