Groups around the world are increasingly successful in maintaining or winning autonomy. However, what happens to individuals within the groups who find that their group discriminates against them? This volume brings together sixteen distinguished scholars who examine the balance between group autonomy and individual rights in relation to conflicts involving gender, religion, culture, and indigenous rights in the national and international sphere.

"...a valuable and much welcomed contribution to studies in contemporary phenomenology and Husserl scholarship." --Christopher McTavish, Loyola University of Chicago: Philosophy in Review
