The Romani ethnic minority reflected in historical discourse and  [cached]
Olga Grosariu
DOCT-US , 2009,
Abstract: The present article proposes an analysis of the Romani minority, starting from the historic discourse, which offers an image of their lifestyle and traditions, continuing with media discourse, a real mirror of current mentality with respect to this minority. The first part of the study underlines the problems faced by the Romani during their travelling throughout the world and living almost exclusively at the edge of the society, which, for more or less subjective reasons, did not offer them a real chance of rehabilitation. The second part focuses on the huge role of the media in changing our perception upon the Romani minority. The first step is done: the media have dropped its negative stereotypes, emphasizing positive actions and presenting the Romani from an angle unparalleled before
Policy turn and discourse reconstruction of ethnic minority preference in China

- , 2016, DOI: 1672-3104(2016)04-0137-06
Abstract: 摘 要: 我国是一个民族二元结构相对突出的多民族国家。为了实现少数民族与主体民族均衡协调的发展,我国实施了以“民族身份”作为社会资源倾斜性分配依据的民族优惠政策,在很大程度上促进了少数民族整体性发展。然而,随着时代变迁和社会嬗变,民族优惠政策的外溢效应渐趋凸显,民族优惠政策的存废也引发了学术界激烈而持久的思想交锋。事实上,由于我国民族二元结构在当前依然缺乏实质性改观,民族优惠政策仍然具有生存和发挥作用的空间。不过,鉴于民族优惠政策效力递减的客观现实,我国也应该逐渐以“区域主义”和“位差主义”的扶助政策替代“民族身份”取向的民族优惠政策,并通过重构“民族优惠”的话语体系,推动各民族形成“民族互惠”的中华民族共同体意识。
Abstract: China boasts of multi ethnic minorities with remarkable binary structure. In order to realize the balanced development between the ethnic minorities and majority, our country implements ethnic minority preferential policies with ethnic identity as the standard in allocating social resources inclinedly, which promotes their holistic development. However, with the development of the age and evolution of the society, the spillover effect of ethnic minority preferential policies began to highlight, arousing in academia heated and long-lasting controversy over its maintaining or abolishing. In fact, there is still much room for such policies to survive and develop because there still lacks critical change in the binary structure in our ethinicity. But, in view of the spillover effect of the ethnic minority preferential policies, we should turn gradually from the ethnicity-oriented preferential policies to difference-oriented support policies such as regionalism and difference discipline, and reconstruct the discourse system of national preference to promote the awareness of Chinese ethnic community that all ethnic groups form national reciprocity
Cultural Identity and Human Rights: Minority Claims, Ethnic Identity and Group Rights  [PDF]
Dhruv Pande, Munmun Jha
Open Journal of Political Science (OJPS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojps.2016.64032
Abstract: This paper explores the relationship between cultural identity and human rights in the light of the dynamics of identity formation, based on the immediate external culture of any multicultural society. The objective of this study is to analyze the relationship between culture, identity and rights, which broadens the parameter of the existing dimension of human rights, using secondary sources to review the literature. It argues that these dynamics are marked by a number of factors and components featuring the group, community and individual rights. This prepares grounds for a wider, inclusionary and horizontal understanding of the Human Rights dimension and paradigms, not only in a multicultural society but also in a democratic nation- state which is significantly marked by minority rights and ethnic identity claims. Thus through a critical approach and a post-colonial perspective, this paper shows how this specific and particular dynamics of cultural identity casts an effect on the theory and practice of normative political theory and trajectories. The paper concludes that the Human Rights inherently invoke a challenge in the analysis of identity-formation and cultural heterogeneity dynamics, which are significant in the contemporary global democratic politics.

Minority Rights and the Role of Law: Reflections on Themes of Discourse in Kymlicka's Approach to Ethnocultural Identity  [PDF]
Pentassuglia, Gaetano
Journal on Ethnopolitics and Minority Issues in Europe , 2002,
Abstract: This paper discusses the international legal dimension of Kymlicka's theory of ethnocultural diversity and the prospects for achieving consensus on a stronger set of justice-based international norms on minority rights. Besides addressing specific human rights issues on their own terms, the author argues that the impact of Western experiences in addressing minority questions, while of considerable importance to locally-generated minority protection strtegies in the East, may prove more limited in generating a credible set of generally-binding regimes rooted in considerations of justice than is expected. Minority rights standards, it is contended, have so far been perceived - by both East and West - primarily as security tools. This raises not only the problem of how best to strengthen minority rights as part of human rights law, but also the need to clarify the ultimate vision of minority rights law itself.
Research on the Acceptance and Expectation of Chinese Ethnic Minority Group Movies in Britain and US
Yiyun Chen, Minwei Sun, Jianguo Wang
Open Access Library Journal (OALib Journal) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/oalib.1105390
Based on the survey on the acceptance and expectation of Chinese ethnic minority group movies in Britain and US, we analyse the problems in the outbound circulation of ethnic minority group movies and their causes, and provide some feasible solutions for the transmission of Chinese culture abroad. By means of the questionnaire and online communication, we construct data models to further learn about the British and American views about minority group movies. We find that in the process of the exporting of minority group movies, problems include the inefficiency about the business operations, the deviation of cross-cultural communication and the poor quality of movies themselves. Therefore, we suggest combining the commercial and artistic functions in movies, improving marketing strategies, and optimizing talent resources.
Minority College Students’ Well-Being and Its Protector—Ethnic Identity

李书慧, 肖子伦
Advances in Psychology (AP) , 2016, DOI: 10.12677/AP.2016.610134
There are four kinds of orientations of happiness: subjective well-being, psychological well-being, social well-being and happiness index. In recent years, minority well-being researches have been carried out around its influencing factors. By combing the literature, it is found that ethnic identity is an important factor influencing the well-being of minority college students. The mechanism of ethnic identity affecting well-being is still inconsistent, which needs to further study and discussion.

Community Participation in Ethnic Minority Cultural Heritage Management in China: A Case Study of Xianrendong Ethnic Cultural and Ecological Village
Judy Xu
Papers from the Institute of Archaeology , 2007, DOI: 10.5334/pia.307
Abstract: Heritage protection in China has long been considered as the responsibility of the government. However, over the last 20 years, a number of heritage projects, mainly in ethnic minority regions, have attempted to engage with local communities. These seem to be an attractive alternative to top-down approaches. This paper explores the implications of a bottom-up approach for Chinese ethnic minority heritage management through an examination of the Ethnic Cultural and Ecological Village project in Xianrendong in Yunnan province. It is a result of my fascination with the project’s concept and my desire to understand its key characteristics, application and potential for future development in China. After a discussion of cultural performance, modernisation and inside/outside encounters, I conclude by suggesting that well-planned and well-informed community participation, with realistic control, contributes to reconciling tourism and cultural heritage conservation.
