Chapter Summary

This appendix section of the book Cultural Rights in International Law: Article 27 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Beyond contains an overview of Africa, America, Asia, and Europe national constitutions. Kenya is analyzed due to the fact of the existence of indigenous peoples in its territory. Tunisia has reported regularly to human rights treaty bodies, and there is adequate documentation that allows for a more complete overview of the situation. Guatemala has one of the most advanced systems of legislation regarding cultural rights. Bangladesh is home to various indigenous peoples, most of them living in the Chittagong Hill Tracts. An examination of Bulgaria and Ukraine is useful in light of recent history, given the interest demonstrated by both to accommodate minority situations in their own re-definition of themselves as contemporary pluralistic democracies.
