Implementation of Minority Rights Standards
The Implementation of Minority Rights Standards project (2001-2002) sought to provide a resource for minority groups and other practitioners on the implementation of minority rights standards and other ethnic minority issues.
The principal aim of the project was to effect the publication of a handbook that exhibits the mechanisms for implementation of the ever denser structure of minority rights. In doing so, it sought to provide members of minorities with detailed information on mechanisms that can be effectively invoked to secure access to political participation, non-discrimination and to help faciliate the full expression of their collective identities.
