Latvia : A Work in Progress? : 100 Years of State and Nation-Building
A quarter century after the formation of the Popular Front and a decade since joining the EU, processes of state and nation building in Latvia are still ongoing. Such issues as citizenship, language policy, minority rights, democratic legitimacy, economic stability, and security all remain objects of vigorous public discussion. Today's situation also reflects long-standing debates on the relationship among state, nation, and sovereignty in Latvian society and polity. By examining different aspects of these relationships, this volume reveals both key turning points and continuities in Latvia's development, therefore critically informing current research and debates.
