Fwd: Announcement: ELTE-UNESCO Minority Studies Program

Established in 1992 as an international two-year post graduate MA
program in sociology, the Ethnic and Minority Studies Program
commenced academic operation in the Fall of 1993. In 1997 the Program
was accepted as a member of the UNESCO Chair Network, which means that
it has become an independent department at the Institute of Sociology,
EĂtvĂs Lor└nd University (Budapest), under the name of the ELTE-UNESCO
Minority Studies Department.

The program aims include the following:
- to provide a systematic study of inter-ethnic relations, minority
problems and processes in post-communist societies within a
comparative perspective;
- to provide background in major trends in economy, politics, society,
social policy, social geography, and social psychology of the
countries in transition from state socialism;
- to train future policy makers or expert advisors in issues and
conflicts between regions, nations, ethnic groups, minorities, and
majorities in various parts of Europe;
- to train future scholars in sociology, socio-cultural anthropology,
political and ethnic studies, and social psychology, particularly
those who intend to carry out research or teach in and/or about East
and Central Europe.
