National minorities. An abstract term which evokes the complex realities of those persons who, because of history, have a specific background and identity. With this book, we are here immersed in the heart of the diversity of our societies and their intermingling of populations. The exhibition `National Minorities, Breath of Diversity, Breath of Europe" was conceived in the framework of the 10th anniversary of the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities. This series of photos was taken in Vojvodina, a Serbian multiethnic region. It brings us closer to the people we refer to under the name of "national minorities" and it presents us with the reflection minorities themselves have on issues that have been codified in the Council of Europe's Framework Convention. These are issues of identity, equality, education, participation, culture and media. They also evoke the concept of "living together".
