This chapter is about the freedoms of thought, conscience, and religion, of opinion and expression, and of peaceful assembly and of association; the rights of everyone to take part in the government of his country and of equal access to public services; and the right of peoples to self-determination. With the exception of the collective right to self-determination, these rights and freedoms – all of them rights and freedoms of the individual – are enunciated and proclaimed by articles 18, 19, 20, and 21 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Teaching suggestions, syllabus, and bibliographies are provided at the end of the chapter.
