Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an introduction to the minority legal tradition. It includes an extensive literature review on the history of minority rights law as well as on the political theory of multiculturalism. The chapter examines the history and theoretical implications of minority rights within international law. Cultural rights comprise an aspect of human rights in that they are universal in character and guarantee all persons the right to access their culture. The sub-disciplines within law provide us with an important method of assessing how the international minority regime influences the domestic order on the recognition of minority groups. Researching the jurisprudence of minority case law decisions also illuminates the relationship between the international minority regime and the domestic legal order.

Keywords: cultural rights; jurisprudence; minority legal tradition; multiculturalism
