Description

Globalizing Minority Rights (GMR) is an international interdisciplinary research project funded by The Research Council of Norway (NFR 259017), SAMKUL Program (2016-2020).
GMR is organized under the Pluralism, Democracy, and Justice research group at the Department of Philosophy, UiT The Arctic University of Norway, and lead by Prof. Kasper Lippert-Rasmussen and Associate Prof. Annamari Vitikainen.
The project aims to develop a cosmopolitan approach to the conceptualization, justification, and implementation of minority rights, and to test this theoretical framework on three case studies: minorities in the developing world, indigenous peoples, and refugees. GMR is divided into six working packages.
