Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled Minority Groups and Judicial Discourse in International Law: A Comparative Perspective contains the Table of Contents, a table of cases, and the Acknowledgements. The book uses the term 'minority protection' as an umbrella term that encompasses a flexible range of matters relating to 'minority groups', that is, non-dominant ethno-cultural communities, including indigenous groups, falling within the scope of either general human rights treaties or specialised instruments. In the first part of the book, the four proposed dimensions of recognition, elaboration, mediation and access to justice are explored through a wide range of cases from several jurisdictions. The second part relates the cases-based framework provided by the four dimensions of international jurisprudence concerning minority groups to wider theories of judicial review and legal interpretation in plural societies, as well as normative justifications of international human and minority rights.

Keywords: human rights; international jurisprudence; international law; judicial discourse; minority groups
