Is it fascinating, or maybe precious, to have specified human rights for cultural identities? Do varied conceptions of tradition and identification, and their power to border human rights violations as culturally applicable, complicate the query? How may still a human correct to collective identification be outlined?

Claims to human rights as employing to a complete (ethnic, spiritual or cultural) crew, rather than the person, end up to be advanced. This publication finds the pitfalls, merits and calls for that encompass the controversy for and opposed to tradition and identification in human rights. It connects a continuing and nuanced theoretical debate with hugely topical empirical findings approximately collective rights for indigenous teams, which for hundreds of years were suppressed and marginalized and now stand on the leading edge of (successfully) difficult a human correct to their very own tradition and precise id. This booklet indicates the ambivalences of these calls for and discusses strategies in order that human rights neither exclude marginalized cultural teams nor reproduce inflexible differences among likely specific cultures.
