International Journal on Minority and Group Rights

The International Journal on Minority and Group Rights is devoted to interdisciplinary studies of the legal, political, economic and social problems which minorities and indigenous peoples face in all countries of the world. For the purposes of the Journal, groups are seen as clearly recognizable segments of society, defined by such relatively constant factors, as national or ethnic origin, religion, culture or language.
Current developments, not least the spread of violent ethnic and religious conflicts, underline the need for a periodical publication dealing with the rights of persons belonging to minorities and indigenous peoples and of the groups themselves. The Journal pays special attention to the contribution which human rights standards and good governance guidelines can make to a better world for all. The Journal aims to become the primary forum for the discussion of the vitally important field of studies which it covers.
