Description

The aim of this paper is to look into the topic of human rights; consequently showing that the fight for recognizing the cultural identity develops through the system of human rights. Specifically speaking, the latter is achieved through civil and political rights, individual rights, and I generation. The collective practices of the cultural self-identification of the individual develop exactly through the civil rights, namely speaking the right of self-determination. The collective practices also influence and determine the political system. Therefore, in this paper I direct the tone towards the democratic form of the political system of the segmented or the plural multicultural societies and countries. The implication of this paper is that the consociational democracy (or consensual according to some authors) as a democratic and political system in multi-cultural societies and cultural difference in the politics are tightly intertwined with the source of their rights—meaning the system of human rights.

Keywords:

Human Rights, civil and political rights, collective rights and practices, plural multicultural societies, consociational democracy (consensual), international law on human rights
