  • Itself the category “national minority”, as in use since the end of 19th century, reveals an existing tension between the universality of human rights (institutionalized as membership in a definite political community) and the incumbent particularism resulted from the application of national self-determination principle on ethnic basis. The effort to promote the first principles resulted in a set of rights limiting state sovereignty to promote asymmetric incorporation of its citizenry on the ground of ethnicity (negative rights). The second wave of rights endowment for this category was of promoting substantive entitlements enabling non-titular nationalities to maintain their cultural distinctiveness. Since the last decades of the 20th century, promoting the ideal of universal human rights shifted from protecting historically formed communal groups to fostering the opportunities for emancipation of marginal categories with non-mainstream identities, or life choices.
