Peter Zwiebach's "Whose Right Is It Anyway? Rethinking a Group Rights Approach to International Human Rights"

Read this article. The author reviews two recent books on the topic of human rights and group rights. However, before discussing the particularities of the scholarly books, Zwiebach presents his argument in favor of individual rights. He contends that a group rights approach to human rights is counterproductive to the protection and promotion of human rights and does nothing to advance human rights. In fact, Zwiebach suggests that the conceptualization of group rights lends ambiguity to the human rights discourse and thereby a lack of application.
