ÁRON LÉPHAFT ∗
(Abstract) Although with different focus and intensity, the topic of minority autonomy has been a central
question in Hungarian minority politics of Vojvodina since 1990. The article reviews the dynamics of
Hungarian minority politics, the different concepts of autonomy, their development and differences.
Statements of various political actors and works of scholars gives us the possibility to reconstruct the
viewpoint on ethnic based regionalism of the Serbian, majority perspective as well. A short review of the
Hungarian minority institution system is also done in order to demonstrate recent and future trends in
territoriality, from the formation of first minority ethnic party to the establishment of minority councils.
Furthermore, the paper draws parallels with working autonomies in order to investigate further strategies of
development.
