" 'Dépasser Trianon' : les transformations du nationalisme hongrois, de la 'politique de la nation' à la protection des minorités dans l'UE "

Abstract : Since the end of the Cold War, major European organizations (the European Union and the Council of Europe) have changed their handling of history and implemented memory-related policies that sought to answer numerous demands of recognition of 'painful pasts'. This article analyses the logics of this Europeanization of memory issues by looking at the mobilizations of political actors who use the positions they simultaneously occupy in several social spaces in order to put memory conflicts on the EU's agenda. The demonstration is based on a case study - the 2001 law on the status of the Hungarians living in neighboring countries and its recent developments - that illustrates how a bilateral dispute can be turned into a 'European problem'. It also shows that the mediation of European organizations, instead of solving this conflict, has altered the discursive tools used by the parties involved, thereby fuelling a process of consolidation of a controversial legal category, that of 'national minority', in EU Treaties.
