Chapter Summary

This book has attempted to trace the origins and basis of what we have termed the emerging fourth movement in the complex, multifaceted history of minority protection. The tensions generated by the third movement in the form of controversial standard-setting and weak monitoring mandates are being paralleled by an ever greater body of international jurisprudence on minority issues, notably under general human rights treaties, in ways that both assume yet partly transcend the acquis of the third movement and reflect varying degrees of interaction with domestic case law. As the whole body of international jurisprudence indicates, the dimensions of recognition, elaboration, mediation and access to justice as well as their attendant procedural and substantive ramifications, reverberate well beyond the parameters laid down by the regime at issue, and perhaps general international law as well.

Keywords: international jurisprudence; international law
