1. INTRODUCTION

The Forum for Philosophy and Public Policy at Queen's University is

and minority rights in multiethnic states, under the direction of
Prof. Will Kymlicka. As part of this project, the Forum distributes a
quarterly newsletter updating recent developments in the field, of
which this is the twenty-fifth issue. We hope that it will be of

service, or various non-governmental organizations.
