4.6.2014, NIAR – Many EU documents are speaking relatively little bit about minorities’ rights protection

Bajram Haliti, editor in chief of “Journalistic-informative agency of Roma, said today that in the after-war period extraordinary attention had been given to human rights and freedoms. Norms that are related to ethnic, religious and racial minorities are especially determined. Besides the General declaration about man’s rights of United Nations from 1948, which has proclaimed general principles of equality of all, there are also brought numerous conventions, pacts and other documents that bind countries on respect of general principles and special duties in regard of human rights and freedoms. Those are, for instance: Convention about prevention and punishment of genocide crime from 1951, Convention of International Work Organization from 1960 about employment and occupations, Convention against discrimination in education from 1960 and others

However, mentioned documents speak relatively little bit about protection of minorities’ rights, probably because the mentioned declarations are dealing with general principles and leaving minorities’ issues to countries.
