Abstract

This chapter analyzes the political claim-making of the Transylvanian Hungarian elites after 1989. The first part of the chapter deals with Romania’s minority policy regime and the attitudes of the majority population toward Hungarian ethno-political demands. The second section details the strategies of minority political claim-making, also providing a periodization of the post-1989 era and a discussion of two core elements of Hungary’s influence as a kin-state, namely the relationship of the minority elites with the political actors in Budapest and the issue of Hungarian citizenship. The third section illustrates the limits of the strategy of unequal accommodation (that has been central to Hungarian minority political claim-making in the past two decades) on the example of two core ethno-political goals, political autonomy, and language rights.
