About this product
- DescriptionThis work explores the contribution that international law may make to the resolution of culture conflicts - political disputes between the members of different eth-cultural groups - in democratic States. International law recognises that persons belonging to mirities have the right to enjoy their own culture and peoples have the right to self-determination without detailing how these principles are to be put into effect. The emergence of democracy as a legal obligation of States permits the international community to concern itself with both the procedure and substance of 'democratic' decisions concerning eth-cultural groups. Democracy is t to be understood simply as majority rule. Cultural conflicts in democratic States must be resolved in a way that is either acceptable or defensible and defeasible to all citizens, including persons belonging to eth-cultural mirities. Democracy, Mirities and International Law examines the implications of this recognition.
