Justification of Minority Protection
in International Law
By Athanasia Spiliopoulou Akermark
This book claims that it is necessary and possible to develop a working holistic approach to minority protection. The broader concept of "minority protection" is found to be more suitable than "minority rights" for describing accurately all aspects of international law activities concerning minorities. The author argues that international law justifies minority protection through reference to peace, human dignity and culture. The issue of how to define a "minority" is also related to the question of justification.
