Beyond compliance : Recognition, solidarity and minority rights in post-accession Estonia

Sjöstedt, Roxanna LU (2018) In Nationalism and Ethnic Politics 24(2). p.158-180
Abstract

Implementation of minority rights norms is an important step for integration. The ultimate aim of norm diffusion is internalization, that is, when a norm is being taken for granted. This article seeks to develop an understanding of socialization beyond formal compliance and suggests that material and ideational structures at both the elite and societal levels mutually reinforce one another. The framework is applied to the case of the integration of the Russian minority in Estonia, 1991–2016. The concepts of recognition and solidarity help to theorize and explain this socialization process and the constraints of both materialist and identity dimensions.
