    Introduction: This paper surveys the norms and procedures adopted in a number of European countries to facilitate representation and participation of ethnic minorities in the political process. The emergence of regional parties is the result of a process of mobilization of new constituencies in places in which local ethnic realities possessed little political weight or national influence. Ad hoc political parties were created to redress a strong majoritarian bias and allow minorities into the political process.
