Eichler's book reflects deeply on the relationship between the collective rights of indigenous peoples and the individual rights of their members, with a particular focus on minority sub-groups such as women, children and elderly, who have been granted special protection in international human rights law. Complementary to the theoretical reflection, an empirical analysis from Bolivia is presented, which allows the author to offer a reconciliation framework as a necessary step to change perspectives on the exercise of the rights of participation, consultation and self-determination of indigenous peoples.
