Focusing on Hungary and The Netherlands, this book unites state-of-the-art empirical research concerning inter-ethnic relations with analyses of the political, legislative, educational and urban planning contexts of two societies dealing with the pressures inherent in moving towards greater international interdependence. The contributions are divided into four thematic sections, exploring ethnic and national identities and stereotypes, anti-Semitism and anti-Romany prejudice, spheres of exclusion and the concept of a "politics of inclusion." The book not only presents striking comparisons of the societies of Hungary and The Netherlands, but also offers new directions and approaches for future comparative analyses of inter-ethnic relations in contemporary Europe.
