Struggling for ethnic identity : the gypsies of Hungary by Gyorgy Feher( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the demise of the Communist regime in Hungary, the country's Gypsy or Roma population has benefited from the suspension of decades of assimilationist, and at times overtly racist, government policy and from an increased tolerance for the expression of Roma identity. However, Romas continue to suffer serious discrimination, and at times violence, at the hands of fellow citizens, and many public officials appear to exhibit the same behavior

Denying human rights and ethnic identity : the Greeks of Turkey by Lois Whitman( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Greek community in Turkey is dwindling, elderly and frightened. Its population has declined from about 110,000 at the time of the signing of the Lausanne Treaty in 1923 to about 2,500 today. Its fearfulness stems from an appalling history of programs and expulsions suffered at the hands of the Turkish government. A Helsinki Watch mission visited Turkey in October 1991 and found that the government of Turkey continues to violate the human rights of the Greek minority today. These acts include harassment by police; restrictions on free expression; discrimination in education involving teachers, books and curriculum; restrictions on religious freedom; limitations on the right to control charitable institutions; and the denial of ethnic identity. All of these abuses violate international human rights laws and standards that have been signed or endorsed by the government of Turkey, including the European Convention on Human Rights and the Paris charter
Human rights in Moldova : the turbulent Dniester by Erika Dailey( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report covers a broad spectrum of human rights abuses that occurred in the region of the Dniester River in Moldova. The most egregious are those committed in connection with the armed conflict that erupted in the first half of 1992, including indiscriminate attacks on civilians and civilian structures and extrajudicial killings. It also documents violations of civil and political rights that were partially caused and later exacerbated by the armed conflict. These include discriminatory dismissals from the workplace and ethnically motivated assaults"--Publisher's webiste
