11 Homi K. /Apr. 2000), 3-6. 28 David Huddart sense of ‘between nations’ is what concerns Bhabha: people who are, for various reasons, between nations legally, culturally, or otherwise. These inbetween people are not only marginal examples, unimportant to the central business of human rights discourses. 12 It would seem that if cultures are to be protected, this protection must be extended beyond national cultures. It is clear that Bhabha’s ideas about the hybrid and the national could transform cultural rights discussion, and this potential transformation derives from his balanced understanding of the pedagogical and the performative.

Bhabha believes that hybridity calls into question traditional analyses of colonialism, which tend to merely reverse the terms of colonial knowledge. Again, hybridity is not a consequence of other, apparently ‘pure’ positions that have been, for one reason or another, thrust together. The consequences of Bhabha’s position are multiple, and of course the position itself is not without its complexities and controversies. Nonetheless, its implications can be traced in particular contexts, and Bhabha himself has recently pursued them through cultural rights.

Those extreme, in-between cases that Kymlicka explicitly brackets are not merely complex versions of the nominally standard cases he does consider. Those cases, suspended in-between nations, are not exceptions but are increasingly the norm, especially for a language of human rights that ought to operate transnationally rather than internationally. Minority rights can and must be thought of in terms of national frameworks, as explored in liberal philosophy; however, they must also be thought of in terms that exceed nations, and this is because so many people are being excluded and written off as excessive to nations.
