On October 29, 2010, Kristin Henrard authorised the location of outstanding professor on minority safety on the Erasmus institution of legislations, a chair that's funded by means of the Trustfonds of Erasmus collage Rotterdam. This publication comprises Henrard's inaugural speech. Henrard first revisits the connection among and temporal evolution of basic human rights and specific minority-specific rights, through exhibiting how basic rights have been initially conceived for and adapted in the direction of the desires of spiritual minorities. within the moment half, Henrard exposes the ambiguous dating among non secular minorities and basic rights. certainly, whereas spiritual minorities, and the security they have been thought of to wish, can have brought on the emergence of either common human rights and distinctive minority rights, for that reason their particular wishes - when it comes to human dignity, identification, and substantive equality - have been ignored. Henrard therefore demands a redress of the present imbalance - extra fairly via a refinement of the prevailing norms.
