- "...as this collection of essays successfully demonstrates, there is much to be learnt from the way this conflict, ...was in the end successfully deescalated. Even if the lessons can clearly not simply be transferred, the conflict,...'exemplifies how an ethnic minority conflict can be peacefully and consensually resolved'." - Robert Knight, in "Journal of Contemporary European Studies", 2018 VOL. 26, NO. 1, 133-145;
