There are many European countries with sizable ethnic minorities. Some have dealt with this more successfully than others. One approach that is taken is distinguishing between "nationality" and "citizenship". A Slovenian colleague once referred citizens of Slovenia who came from Bosnia as being Slovenian citizens but having Bosnian nationality. This may or may not be a good thing but may be the most viable approach. In Finland you have the Svenska Finns who make up about 5% of the population (albeit a very wealthy 5%) and still speak Swedish (so do most Suomi Finns along with about 5 other languages typically). The street signs in Helsinki have both Finnish and Swedish names.
