Abstract

Despite being at the forefront of the development of human rights law, minority rights as a sui generis discourse has slipped away from the forefront of the international human rights regime. This has occurred despite the continued salience of questions concerning identity in international law and politics. This paper argues that the closing down of space at international level has meant that further developments protecting individuals irrespective of their identity, are more likely to come at national level, and suggests theaters, theories, and models in various states, where minorities are currently negotiating policies that are worth considering and replicating elsewhere.
