The "Cultural Multi-Identity": a New Dimension of the Human Rights

Speech by Qin Hui in the closing session of the Lille Assembly, December 10th 2001

"As we don’t accept the idea of cultural hierarchy, we cannot admit that a "pure" culture can be superior to "crossed" cultures. This is also why a "movement of purification" imposed within a cultural area cannot be legitimate. Eventually, the recognition of multi-identity is a new dimension of Human rights: having the right to choose one’s culture, and to respect the cultural choice of each individual."
