The Right to Difference

The Right to Difference

By the 1990s, the “right to difference,” le droit à la différence, had become a watchword as minorities, including Jews, began to demand recognition of their voice, and their claims to group affiliation, in the public sphere.

Universalism the fundamental equality of all individuals and equal treatment before the law has been a treasured political concept in France since the Revolution. But lately, anxiety over France s Muslim minority has led politicians and intellectuals to embrace a form of universalism that demands loyalty to the nation at the expense of all ethnic and religious affiliations. In this timely book, Maurice Samuels shows that French universalism was not always so hostile to religion and urges us to understand its history and varied forms. He argues, furthermore, that French universalism has evolved in the modern period largely as a discourse on Jews. Tracing the development of this discourse through key moments in French history, from debates over granting Jews civil rights during the Revolution, through the Dreyfus Affair and Vichy, and up to the rise of the new antisemitism after 2000, Samuels shows that Jewish difference has always been essential to the elaboration of French universalism, whether as its foil or as proof of universalism s reach. Ranging from the French Revolution to the recent attack on "Charlie Hebdo," this book will be of keen interest to anyone studying issues of religious tolerance, the history of European Jewry, and the dilemmas of contemporary France.

Human rights and their principles of interpretation are the leading legal paradigms of our time. Freedom of religion occupies a pivotal position in rights discourses, and the principles supporting its interpretation receive increasing attention from courts and legislative bodies. This book critically evaluates religious pluralism as an emerging legal principle arising from attempts to define the boundaries of freedom of religion. It examines religious pluralism as an underlying aspect of different human rights regimes and constitutional traditions. It is, however, the static and liberal shape religious pluralism has assumed that is taken up critically here. In order to address how difference is vulnerable to elimination, rather than recognition, the book takes up a contemporary ethics of alterity. More generally, and through its reconstruction of a more difference-friendly vision of religious pluralism, it tackles the problem of the role of rights in the era of diverse narratives of emancipation.

Reflections on the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

Reflections on the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

Cultural difference, then, was a strong factor in the argument that African indigenous peoples should fall within the scope of the Declaration. As with the Asian indigenous movement, this was a matter of necessity.

The adoption of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples by the United Nations General Assembly on 13 September 2007 was acclaimed as a major success for the United Nations system given the extent to which it consolidates and develops the international corpus of indigenous rights. This is the first in-depth academic analysis of this far-reaching instrument. Indigenous representatives have argued that the rights contained in the Declaration, and the processes by which it was formulated, obligate affected States to accept the validity of its provisions and its interpretation of contested concepts (such as 'culture', 'land', 'ownership' and 'self-determination'). This edited collection contains essays written by the main protagonists in the development of the Declaration; indigenous representatives; and field-leading academics. It offers a comprehensive institutional, thematic and regional analysis of the Declaration. In particular, it explores the Declaration's normative resonance for international law and considers the ways in which this international instrument could catalyse institutional action and influence the development of national laws and policies on indigenous issues.

It is quite generally agreed (see, e.g., Subirana, 1969) that left- and right-handers differ neurologically not only in direction of lateral specialization of the brain but also in degree, sinistrals being less completely lateralized.
