Human Rights and Ethnocultural Justice

Human Rights and Ethnocultural Justice

(p.69) 4 Human Rights and Ethnocultural Justice
Politics in the Vernacular

Will Kymlicka (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Existing conceptions of human rights fail to address serious issues of ethnocultural justice. The reasons why human rights are insufficient for ethnocultural justice, and the possibility of greater consensus on the transnational application of human rights are discussed. Three areas where individual rights fail to adequately protect the interests of national minorities are: decisions on internal migration/settlement policies, decisions on the boundaries and powers of internal political subunits, and decisions on official languages.

Keywords:   human rights, ethnocultural justice, minorities, internal migration, settlement, political subunits, language
