In the last decade on the territory of the Balkans and South-East Europe the work on improvement of respect of human rights and democratic values has intensified. Centres gathered in regional Human Rights Centre Network are also participating in these efforts. Experiences gained in this period show that full size of respecting human rights cannot be reached only through legislative changes, judicial reforms, education and re-education of legal professionals, improvement of administration, strengthening of local self-management and improvement and expansion of high-school and high-level institution classes. Our centres gave appropriate contribution to this. Nevertheless, heritage that all transitional countries, especially those in our part of the world, are facing demands that attitudes and habits of people be changed from basics and that respect of human rights and human dignity be internalised. This wider complex of human rights enjoyment that doesn't only depend on respect for legal regulations we named as the culture of human rights and decided to deal with it seriously. This text collection is the first break-through in that direction. It is an output of repeated meetings, exchange of opinions and close co-operation of its authors, members of a group organised by the Belgrade Centre for Human Rights.

Are human rights only a peculiarity of a man as an individual, that is, is he the only one who's entitled to it? Can an individual be entitled to human rights only through his belonging to a certain group (collective)? What is the relation between human rights towards groups and their (collective) rights and otherwise, that is, can collective rights be considered as human rights? Who are the actual beneficiaries of collective rights? This book is trying to answer these questions and to put in doubt many theoretical opinions, and by that gets even a discursive character and trying to animate further research of this problem. This book is primarily suitable for students of law and political sciences, but also for all those who are participating, disciplinary and interdisciplinary, in undergraduate and post-graduate studies that have curricula directing towards deeper study and introduction of human rights and also to provide them wider knowledge and foundation for their further work. This book is also suitable for a scientific layman on this subject.
