Whereas previous lessons have primarily addressed individual rights, Lesson 6 introduces you to the concept of collective rights. The lesson includes a comprehensive discussion on the validity of collective rights, considering the several points that contribute to the difficulty in reconciling them with the traditional conception of human rights. The end of the lesson focuses on the most important and most frequently invoked collective right: the right to self-determination, which is placed within the context of the world’s long history of colonialism and decolonization.
