This project posits that by using a deliberative process to resolve the discrepancy in Human Rights interpretation, new aspirations for society can be formulated that will bring the immigrants and nationals of Europe together. It does this by first explaining what is problematic about Human Rights, using as examples the Niqab ban in France, the Banlieue riots in Paris, and the Danish cartoon scandal. The proposed deliberative process hopes to bring conflicts over Human Rights such as these to an end. Using a seven-step process that spans between the state level and supranational level, this model is meant to be a guide to how this process would function. Based around the ideas that multiculturalism is flawed, and that deliberation is an ideal way forward, the project is founded on the work of academics that have focused on these ideas.
This work began as an idea that the laws a person believes shape their identity and therefore are extremely influential. It then developed into a deliberative process by researching this subject and identifying a missing element to the discussion around immigrant vs. national conflict, dialogue models. The subsequent deliberative model is meant to offer one such framework for dialogue, which is intended to help find a solution to immigrant vs. national conflict in Europe.
