Summary/Abstract: Protection of minority rights has been a concern of international legal regulation, ever since the emergence of the state system in the sixteen and seventeen centuries and subsequent appearance of internationallaw. Throughout the history of international law, this issue has been addressed in a rather inconsistent manner- from the League of Nations to United Nations system of human rights protection- there has been no set of standards or documents that can be referred to as regime of minority protection. One thing has been constant - even though "the minority question has never contained itself entirely within national borders," states showed great reluctance to be bound by international, universally applicable rules.
