Chapter 5: Minority policy and social rights: the case of Estonia
Estonia is similar to the Czech Republic insofar as it is formally a unitary state. But the Estonian case is also very particular due to the presence of a Russian minority and to a conflictive past with Russia. This chapter gives a comprehensive overview of the different economic and cultural aspects of official Estonian policies to accommodate minority claims and to integrate its population. It considers the economic, social and cultural dimensions of citizen rights and aims at a differentiated and critical evaluation of the outcomes of the policies in relation to access to justice, the labour market, housing and education.
