Chapter Summary

The jurisprudential context of case decisions in Aboriginal and Roma case studies demonstrated support for the contitutionalisation of the minority regime. This chapter addresses the consequences of the establishment of the minority regime for three normative claims. First, the chapter briefs the claim that the minority regime constitutes an illiberal form of group rights. Next, the chapter discusses the idea that the minority regime Balkanises states and damages common citizenship. Thirdly, there is the claim that the minority regime provides authority for the illiberal acts of religious fundamentalist groups. Majority religious groups in western societies are as capable of illiberal acts as are minority religious groups.

Keywords: minority regime; Roma people
