Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.9in. x 0.6in.This study examines the question of how European minority rights and non-discrimination standards have diffused from the international arena into Estonia and Slovakia. The main aim is to explore and compare the conditions for formal legal norm adoption with the conditions for norm implementation.

Based on the two models this thesis develops three diffusion dimensions the quality of norms, international organisations, and domestic level agents. Each dimension integrates rationalist and constructivist concepts of norm diffusion. It is argued that a theoretical synthesis of rationalist and constructivist approaches best accounts for the process of norm diffusion. Empirical data suggests that the legal adoption of minority rights norms was crucially influenced by EU conditionality and external incentives in combination with minority political participation, and international socialisation.

Synopsis:

This study examines the question of how European minority rights and non-discrimination standards have diffused from the international arena into Estonia and Slovakia.

Each dimension integrates rationalist and constructivist concepts of norm diffusion. It is argued that a theoretical synthesis of rationalist and constructivist approaches best accounts for the process of norm diffusion. Empirical data suggests that the legal adoption of minority rights norms was crucially influenced by EU conditionality and external incentives in combination with minority political participation, and international socialisation. However, the diffusion process was not completely successful. The empirical analysis reveals significant implementation deficits. Frequent racial discrimination towards Roma in Slovakia a
