      [From the Introduction]. ...kin-state activism in Central and Eastern Europe has increased despite a substantive improvement of minority rights in most societies in this region and the fact that most Central and Eastern European societies are now either part of the EU (or expect to join in the near future). The purpose of our paper is to advance the understanding of this phenomenon. First, we outline the types of kin-state strategies that have emerged as popular in the region, with a particular focus on benefit laws and citizenship laws. We then turn to an analysis of the Hungarian case, which has been seemingly the most consistent and coherent virtual nationalism policy as well as the most controversial one, attracting a great degree of attention from policy-makers in the region, European officials, and scholars of nationalism. Finally, to gain further insight into the differences on the spectrum of virtual nationalism, we discuss the strategies pursued by Romania and Russia.
