Intégration des étrangers et protection des minorités : étude comparée du droit international et du droit européen

Abstract : As most recent statistics show, international migration has become a phenomena of considerable magnitude, totaling over 232 million people. The impact of this phenomena on the countries of Europe has been substantial, having been felt in many domains. This paper will examine the question of whether the legal tools available to the European states are sufficient and appropriate in dealing with the outcomes of their immigration policy, most notably the aforementioned change in status. This research paper touches upon several legal aspects having to do with the status of migrants in the host European countries in which they have settled. As a case in point, this paper will specifically discuss the case of distinguished migrant groups- sharing such things as identical point of origin, ethnicity, culture, and language- who, as a result of their failure/inability to integrate into the broader society of the host country (resulting from hardships encountered due to language, culture, religion, discrimination or rejection which in turn encourage processes of social insulation/identity redicalization) become a differentiated cultural minority. This research paper will follow the process by which the status of these groups morphs, or rather mutates, from 'migrants' to that of a 'minority'. Part One will discuss the concept of 'minority', its field of application and the way in which international law and the legal institutions of the European Union understand it. Part Two will discuss the many implications of this change/mutation in status as it pertains to the different rights with which the group is endowed.
