Abstract and Keywords

This article provides a clear delineation of the nature of the two budding regimes of international human rights law that respond to both collective and personal vulnerabilities. It determines that UN efforts have aimed to ensure that minorities are protected and can even participate in the dominant societies in which they live. The cultures of indigenous peoples, on the other hand, need protection from the societies around them. The article shows that globalization has threatened the existence of indigenous peoples and made it possible for other people to be aware of their troubles.

Keywords: minorities, indigenous peoples, international human rights law, culture, globalization
