Un cas spécifique : les musulmans de Thrace

The specific case of Muslims living in Thrace, in the North of Greece, is governed by theTreaty of Lausanne of 1923 (in french). It stipulates Greece’s obligation (and Turkey’s for non-Muslims) to protect the religious, linguistic and educational freedoms of religious minorities.
The Muslim minority of Thrace seems homogenous, but it is divided, on a linguistic level, into three groups ; Muslims of Turkish background, Pomaks and Roma. Minority schools, mainly primary schools but also two high schools, provide instruction solely in Turkish. Several years ago a quota was established for access to higher education for Greek Muslims.
