Abstract

Ensuring the human rights of ethnic minorities, including economic, social and cultural rights, is one of the fundamental contents, recognized and protected in international instruments and laws of the countries. The economic, social and cultural rights include the housing rights, employment rights, ownership rights, freedom of production and business, social security rights, access rights to public services, education services, health care, preservation rights of cultural identity, etc... As a member country of the International Convention on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, the State of Vietnam has issued many guidelines, policies, legal documents and perfected the institutions to guarantee the human rights of ethnic minorities. This article analyzes the situation (results achieved, limits) and lessons learned in ensuring the economic, social and cultural rights of ethnic minorities, thereby proposing a number of measures to better protect these rights of ethnic minorities in Viet Nam in the context of globalization and international integration today.
