This chapter discusses group rights. It considers the good-based argument and justice-based argument for group rights. The first argument is unsuccessful while the second succeeds as an argument, but that it is not an argument for group rights. Many supposed group rights are also best not seen as rights at all, and some others can be reduced to individual rights. Two possibilities are discussed: exclusion and reduction.

Keywords:   human rights, group rights, exclusion, reduction
