Since then the AP – Dec 2010 3 connections between economic, social and cultural rights and identity protection are increasingly highlighted in the following ways: a) increasing recognition that some economic activities can be part of an identity of a minority; b) increasing recognition that cultural differences need to be taken into account in the interpretation of economic, social and cultural rights; c) recognition that non-discrimination cannot be limited to an obligation to apply identical treatment to all. (...) This in turn leads to the recognition that protection of specific economic activities can serve towards the protection of communities and their identity. Ad b) This is connected to the notion of cultural appropriateness. (...) Culture is therefore seen as an aspect of economic, cultural and social rights.

KKTC is impacted by two nation states and two provincial jurisdictions. Maintaining cultural connections with members across an international boundary is difficult.
