Bowring, Bill (2012) Russian legislation in the area of minority rights. In: Protsyk, O. and Harzl, B. (eds.) Managing Ethnic Diversity in Russia. Routledge Contemporary Russia and Eastern Europe Series. Abingdon, UK: Routledge, pp. 15-36. ISBN 9780415531481.
Book synopsis: This book provides a comprehensive overview of the norms and practices of ethnic diversity management in the Russian Federation in the last twenty years. It examines the evolution of the legal framework, the institutional architecture and the policies intended to address the large number of challenges posed by Russia’s immense ethno-cultural diversity. It analyses the legal, social and political changes affecting ethno-cultural relations and the treatment of ethnic minorities, and assesses how ethnic diversity both influences and is shaped by transformations in Russian politics and society. It concludes by appraising how successful or otherwise policies have been so far, and by outlining the challenges still faced by the Russian Federation.
