Questions of collective or group rights have been contentious questions in international law and politics for a long time -- arguably for as long as individual rights. More recently there have been attempts, in the United Nations and elsewhere, to assert what is perceived as a new category of rights, a so-called 'third generation' of collective or peoples' rights. This collection of essays explores the range of opinions on these controversial and disputed issues, and is a welcome and constructive contribution to the continuing debate on an area of growing interest in international law.
