Abstract

The term minority as used in the United Nations human rights system usually refers to national or ethnic, religious and linguistic minorities, pursuant to the United Nations Minorities Declaration. All States have one or more minority groups within their national territories, characterized by their own national, ethnic, linguistic or religious identity, which differs from that of the majority population. The assurance of minorities is one of the most seasoned worries of international law. The base of the minority issue lies in segregation, abuse, avoidance, and foreswearing of personality. These issues relating to minorities have been tended to by states exclusively and as a feature of bigger global society by conceiving diverse frameworks. The security of minority rights has maybe never been as pertinent as today. Kazakhstan’s unusually diverse ethnic makeup was partially due to it being a historical transit point for Central Asian groups moving west. More recently it was used by Tsarist Russia and then by the Soviet Union as an area of Russian colonization. The impact of policies means that though they are now the largest ethnic group within Kazakhstan, the Kazakhs were a minority at the time of independence in 1991. They now constitute a majority after millions, mainly Russians and other minorities, left after independence. Minority groups include Russians, Ukrainians, Uzbeks, Germans, Tatars, Uighurs, Belarusians, Koreans.
