    With the emergence of nation states in Europe over the centuries, a parallel Europe of national minorities arose. In the 20th century, these minorities were thrown into the fire of several violent conflicts and became victims of war crimes and ethnic cleansing. The international community, while generally recognizing the need to protect national minorities from such atrocities, has approached this issue in various ways over the century which, unfortunately, failed to prevent new escalation of ethnic tensions. It was the war in Yugoslavia in the early 1990s that triggered a new wave of interest in the rights of national minorities. Three distinct, albeit related, systems of protecting rights of national minorities were developed: the United Nations, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, and the Council of Europe system. This book contains a collection of crucial legal and political documents related to rights of national minorities that are forming the three systems of contemporary minority protection. The outbreak of new minority protection was motivated, not only by humanitarian concerns for the rights of minorities, but also by various policy considerations. Many of the documents scrutinized in the book appear to be justified in terms of their contribution to stability, peace, and democracy in Europe, as well as in terms of the contributions that minorities can make to the enrichment of societies. The material in this book is presented for further discussion about the future of national minority protection. In the present day, many European countries exclude numerous 'new minorities' formed by immigrant populations from their definitions of national minorities. It might be worthwhile to consider the motivations that led to the emergence of minority protection and whether the same motivation is not relevant in the case of these 'new minorities.'

    The legality of preemptive strikes is one of the most controversial questions of contemporary international law. At the core of this controversy stands the temporal dimension of self-defence: when and for how long can a state defend itself against an armed attack? Can it resort to armed force before such an attack occurs? Is anticipatory action covered by the rules of self-defence or should it be treated as a different concept?This book examines whether anticipatory action in self-defence is part of customary international law and, if so, under what conditions. The pre-Charter concept of anticipatory action is demarcated and then assessed against post-Charter state practice. Several instances of self-defence - both anticipatory and remedial - are examined to elucidate the rules governing the temporal dimension of the right. The Six-Day War (1967), the Israeli bombing of an Iraqi reactor (1981), the US invasion of Iraq (2003) and other instances of state practice are given thorough attention.The innovative mark of this book is its comprehensive focus on the temporal dimension and, particularly, the anticipatory aspect of self-defence. By way of conclusion, the definition and limits of anticipatory action in self-defence are incorporated into an accessible formula.The book is highly recommended to academics and legal advisers - ministries of foreign affairs and defence - as well as to international organizations, military academies and journalists. Kinga Tibori Szabo is presently working at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, The Hague, The Netherlands.With a Foreword by Pieter H. Kooijmans, former judge in the International Court of Justice
