On the 100th anniversary of the Versailles Treaty, this series of blog posts will explore historical and contemporary issues relating to one of the main conundrums that democracies have had to confront since the establishment of self-determination and majority rule as the main principles of political legitimacy: the presence of minorities.

Starting in spring 2019, the series will explore a theme a month through the publication of posts by scholars from different disciplinary perspectives, followed by comments from the readers. It will appear simultaneously on this website and H-Nationalism.
