Ethnicity and rule of law: From the dilemmas of ethnic identity to the morphology of minority protection

Course convenor

András László Pap

Course content

The interdisciplinary course is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of the major issues and questions within the purview of minority protection. Following a theoretical introduction and general discussion of the concept and evolution of minority rights and various rights-based approaches to recognizing minorities – such as individual rights, collective rights, self-determination, land-rights equality, discrimination and affirmative action – separate sessions are dedicated to the analysis of specific and specialized legal regimes and institutions. These include the assessment of indigenous rights, refugee protection, Diaspora policies and politics, as well as the scrutiny of legal and political dilemmas concerning hate speech, hate crimes, the legal conceptualization of minority identity and the processing of ethno-national data.
