From the perspective of the rights of minorities in Europe, this section overviews international developments concerning economic and socio-cultural entitlements, including those related to education and the media. It is thematically structured around two clusters related to the minority rights: (a) cultural activities and facilities, including the media; and (b) economic and social life, including education, which are covered by the provisions of the European Charter for Regional and Minority Languages (ETS. No. 148). This review starts with an analysis of the 2016 developments at the UN level, and continues with an overview of advancements at the levels of the OSCE, the EU, and the Council of Europe. The adoption of the Thematic Commentary No. 4 “The Scope of Application of the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities” by the Advisory Committee on the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities (ACFC) is among the most important highlights.

This work shows that not only is inclusionary governance possible, but that the essential legal foundation is already in place; all that is required is the compliance of nations with their obligations under international human rights law, and the centuries-old, nation-state-dominated, war-oriented “balance of power” will be gone forever.
Achieving Inclusionary Governance is an essential starting point for any study or project that aims to pursue, in today’s globalized environment, the democratic tradition on its historically mandated way to realizing the political, civil, and socioeconomic rights of all people.

Faced with the reality of finite and scarce resources, and the fact that realization of most economic and social rights requires resources, can a State comply with its icescr obligations, particularly Article 2(1) thereof, when it engages in investment promotion activities? This paper examines the conditions under which the pursuit of foreign direct investment (fdi) can be deemed consistent with State obligation to fulfill socioeconomic rights. It is posited that investment promotion activities potentially augment the limited national income of many developing countries, thereby creating conditions that make more possible the enjoyment of socio-economic rights. This relationship is premised on the caveat that, as part of the State’s duty to protect, it should ensure the pre-existence of a set of institutions that sufficiently regulates the behavior of foreign businesses and a certain level of human capital and physical infrastructure conducive to knowledge and technology transfer.

nonreligious students are more concerned about socioeconomic rights than Muslim students. This makes sense given that first generation rights tend to be especially secure for citizens with majority status and less secure for minority group citizens, and second generation rights are new and insecure enough that
