Innocenti Occasional Papers, Child Rights Series Double Jeopardy: The children of ethnic minorities AUTHOR(S) Rodolfo Stavenhagen Published: 1994 Innocenti Occasional Papers, Child Rights Series Though the relationships between ethnic minorities and dominant societies are multi-faceted and complex, the interrelated but distinct dimensions of marginalization and discrimination provide a useful framework for studying minority groups. Poor children the world over are vulnerable to abuses and violence, exploitation and human rights violations. When, in addition, they belong to disadvantaged minorities, their plight warrants special attention and requires special policies. The paper concludes by exploring several areas relating to minority children which call for further research, not only with the aim of developing the most effective policies for improving the situtation of minority children but also in order to contribute to the creation of a world in which cultural diversity can lead to more, rather than less, tolerance and to the equal enjoyment of human rights by all. + - Cite this publication | No. of pages: 32 | Thematic area: Minorities | Tags: children's rights, discrimination, minority children, minority groups, rights of minority children | Publisher: UNICEF ICDC, Florence × COPY BIBLIOGRAPHIC CITATION Rodolfo Stavenhagen 1994 Double Jeopardy: The children of ethnic minorities. , pp. 32.
