Minorities and indigenous people are often among the most discriminated, marginalised and excluded communities across the world. They are often debarred from partaking in socio‐economic life, hardly have access to political power and regularly encounter hurdles in expressing their identity. Minorities and indigenous cultures have been critical in strengthening communities and providing activists with a platform to fight for their rights. Ghettoization, discrimination and a lack of legal identification hamper their access to social security. Addressing the structural bases of disadvantage and promoting social inclusion requires a wider set of economic and social policies, including efforts to address discrimination. The topics included in this book on the rights of minorities and indigenous people are of utmost significance and bound to provide incredible insights to readers. Different approaches, evaluations, methodologies and advanced studies on this field have been included herein. Those with an interest in minority and indigenous rights would find this book helpful.
