This volume examines minority protection in international law. Its task is twofold: to examine existing methods of minority protection; and to analyze the underlying justifications of minority protection as reflected in international legal standards and discourse.;The first part outlines the theoretical framework, and the second part addresses minority protection and its justifications in the League of Nations, the Council of Europe, the OSCE and the United Nations. Finally, the author argues that it is possible to develop a working holistic approach to minority protection combining protection of peace, human dignity and culture.
