Abstract:

This article explores the political aspects of national minority identity by analyzing the discourse of the political representative of the Hungarian minority in post-communist Romania (the Democratic Union of Hungarians in Romania).

The article shows that elite discourse has shaped the political role and claims of the Hungarian minority, which influenced the minority nation-building process, as well as the content of the diversity accommodation framework in post-communist Romania.
