The 21st century is an era of decline for the nation state and one of world-wide concern for the problems surrounding sub-state groups: minorities, peoples and indigenous populations. The often violent resurgence of conflicts between these groups and States - in even the stable democracies - poses a challenge to international law as well as to liberal political principles. In this volume, an expert in international minority rights provides clarification of the legal issues involved, and offers insights taken from a wide range of humanitarian disciplines: from philosophy and systems theory to neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and transactional analysis (TA).;The result is an exploration from a variety of perspectives of the terms ""peoples"" and ""minorities"" in international law as well as relationships between minorities, peoples and indigenous rights, individuation and self-determination.
