La protection des minorités au Canada : fondements théoriques, lacunes et pistes de solutions

Par Olivier Dulude, étudiant collaborateur



This paper attempts to circumscribe the philosophical grounds for multicultural minority protection systems. Starting from these grounds it becomes possible to define three dimensions of minority protection, namely individual rights, special minority rights, and self-determination. Following a brief analysis of the canadian constitutional architecture on this matter, some suggestions are made, in the light of comparative law, in order to foster compliance with the proposed model. Those propositions mainly focus on representation rights, minority language media rights, and reshuffling federalism.
