After the breakup of the communist regimes, the countries of Central and Eastern Europe rediscovered their kin-minorities and diasporas. With the sudden transition to democracy came a rebirth and re-definition of national identity, writes the director of the Research Institute for Hungarian Communities Abroad, Zoltán Kántor. In practical terms, the author tells us, this meant national governments reaching out anew to ethnic kin living outside the borders. And this gesture abroad, this new posture, was reflected in political discourse, law and new constitutions across the region.
