School of Law research seminar series.
The idea that minority (or non-dominant) ethnic or language or religious groups deserve and may require protection seems obvious. Yet the discourse on 'ethnocultural diversity' contains many different strands of analysis, influenced by different legal-theoretical frameworks and by institutional developments and public-policy concerns.
The seminar will discuss some contemporary narratives and justifications surrounding 'ethnocultural diversity' in international law and how they relate to developments in the theory and practice of human-rights law. Dr Pentassuglia will argue that looking at what is at stake in ethnocultural claims through the lens of these fluid and intertwined domains of discourse can be as helpful as engaging in discussions about how to maximize protection for particular groups.
