In A Dialogical Concept of Minority Rights , Hanna H. Wei demonstrates that a more plausible and realistic concept of minority rights should consist of not only rights against the state but also rights against the group . She formulates and defends three separate but related rights to dialogue , and thoroughly analyses how they may operate not only to maintain a healthy balance between the minorities' need to be culturally distinct and their need to relate to and belong in the larger society, but also that they address the generalisations and presuppositions on which the debate of multiculturalism has been based, and constitute the first step of a possible solution to many of the theoretical and practical difficulties of minority protection.
Based on author's thesis (doctoral - University of Bristol, 2012).
