Details

This book focuses on the meaning of the expressions "people", "minority" and "indigenous" especially in the practices of States and the United Nations. The author describes the way in which such constructions support and oppose particular policies, giving or denying an international voice to particular groups. He has examined the diplomatic and political processes of definition, and has related suggested meanings to particular actors struggling for the recognition of their interests. It is important to understand the political reasons used to attain solutions to socio-political problems.
