"The extensive bibliography, coupled with a practical analytical Index, combine to provide icing on a cake that should be on the menu of every human rights library. The meticulous attention to organizational detail is demonstrated by the internal numbering system that provides ready access to content."
ASIL UN 21 Interest group Newsletter, Issue #39, May 2009

"...this is a useful tool for everyone wishing to be quickly informed about the contents of instruments of major relevance for the protection of minority rights and/or planning to engage in a comparative study of the texts of the existing bilateral treaties."
Rainer Hofmann, Zeitschrift fur auslandisches oeffentliches Recht und Voelkerrecht, Heidelberg Journal of International Law, Band 69 Nr. 4, 2009.
A broad network of bilateral treaties for the protection of national minorities has been set up during the past fifteen years. They complement and further develop the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities and other multilateral instruments. Some texts are genuine international treaties, while others are non-binding political documents. The present book brings all these texts together in a reliable English translation, which offers practitioners and researchers easy access to and supplies knowledge on the present state of development of the conventional and customary sources of law in this field. The introductory study helps further understanding of the legal character of the texts and explains how to work with these often complex and interrelated sources of law.
