Thus Europe has largely escaped the problems experienced in Canada where the Charter of Rights was promoted in the early 1980s as a measure of Canadian nation-building and has consequently been widely rejected in Quebec. Human rights are not explicitly protected in the treaties of the EU but under pressure from states who have wanted to place their rights guarantees above EU law. The EU’s European Court of Justice has recognised the need to incorporate both national and European charters of rights in its jurisprudence (Moravcsik 1995).

As I hope to show, the European experience provides a fascinating, if flawed, experiment in developing international norms of minority rights, one with lessons for other contexts. The drive to internationalise minority rights in postcommunist Europe The story begins with the collapse of communism in Central and Eastern Europe in 1989, which was accompanied by a number of violent ethnic conflicts. In retrospect, these violent conflicts have largely been confined to the Caucuses and the Balkans. But this was not clear at the time.

The Maastricht Treaty had a clause in favour of cultural and regional diversity, used by the European Parliament and Commission to fund various measures, including the Bureau of Less Widely Spoken Languages in Dublin (Fenet 1995). The Parliament and the Committee of the Regions have also pressed for wider recognition of culture and language in the operation of regional policies. The EU has intervened more effectively in candidate countries, as has the Council of Europe, making treatment of minorities a condition for membership.
