Summary/Abstract: The end of the World War One and the collapse of the Empires challenged the policies of new-born states from Central-South East Europe. This fact may be more clearly in Central Europe, where frontiers have considerably changed and minorities from new states cannot be neglected, neither as number nor significance. In this context, the federalist idea was seen as a solution by a part of political elite. On one hand, we could observe a kind of offensive federalism, which aimed to rebuilt a sacred territory – as Jagellonian Poland or Saint Stephen Kingdom; on the other hand, a kind of defensive federalism, based on maintaining tradition and local values. In this last instance, the most obvious examples are the policies promoted by the Slovak People`s Party and the Croatian Peasant Party.
