Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This thesis was written with the aim of studyingthe volksdeutsche minority in Danish Sleswick-Holsatia (dan.“Sønderjylland”). The author has been using theories from Robert Dahl (amongother prominent political scientists) regarding minority activities in amajority society to measure inclusion of this minority. The thesis is a casestudy on a macro-political level. The result of this study was that thevolksdeutsche minority is indeed well integrated in the contemporary Danishsociety albeit with a strong German identity. Politically, the volksdeutscheminority is represented by their party, the Schleswigsche Partei,which enjoys a good relation with the Danish administration and is representedin Copenhagen by a secretariat. The phenomenon ofhaving two ethno-cultural identities appears to be an elite phenomenon in thisregion but the author welcomes a sociological study regarding identities in Sleswick-Holsatiaas well as a study concerning the volksdeutsche minority´s economic statusin Denmark.
