Managing diversity in the heart of Europe

An introduction to Belgium and its constitutional engineering

Abstract

Throughout its history Belgium has been forced to find a modus vivendi between the  linguistic communities that constitute its population. Federalisation has been the institutional  answer to growing frustrations and  revindications along both sides of the language border. Peaceful coexistence  and good neighbourly relations between the Dutch, French and German speaking peoples of Belgium have been preserved thanks to a complex system of checks and balances, with due respect for minority rights. Is this a sustainable model, worthwile being copied or an  ugly  and expensive piece  of ‘constitutional art’, doomed to disappear? Only time will tell.
