Asserting and Defending People's Rights, Exercising People's Sovereignty
The matter of collective rights, held in common by social groups and nations, as opposed to individuals, is “premised on the concept of humans as social beings, who belong to distinct social groups and whose interactions are greatly shaped by their groups.” Especially in a country like the Philippines, where collective action is often the only weapon that laborers and peasants can wield against capitalists and landowners, the notion of people’s rights is truly empowering.

Democracy Founded on People's Sovereignty

IBON International’s Rights-based Democracy or People-powered Democracy (RBD/PPD) framework upholds people’s sovereignty, enabling people to claim their rights and hold duty-bearers accountable, as well as self-organise and self-mobilise as development actors in their own right.
