Chapter Summary

There is a tremendous body of literature providing in-depth analysis of the respective international instruments. Suffice it to say that the oscillations in question can be captured in four movements in past and recent history. The first movement features minority instruments without an established international framework of human rights. If the third movement marks the era of standard-setting and discursive practice associated with the gradual acknowledgement of minority rights within the post-1945 international human rights framework, a fourth movement seems to be emerging which is relatively insulated from whatever uncertainties or limitations may have been generated by earlier-and still ongoing-international efforts. The aim of this book is to explore this flourishing movement. The PCIJ and-the International Court of Justice (ICJ), did engage with questions relating to minority groups and identity claims in what are still regarded as landmark cases in international law.

Keywords: fourth movement; international human rights; third movement
