Chapter Summary

At a time when people are more and more conscious of how their lives are determined by global events and processes utterly out of their reach, economic and social changes have led individuals to crave assurance that they are in control of their own lives and have a say in the affairs of their country. So for self-determination, one needs to be a part of collaborative projects. A collaborative project is a social subject in fact. Collaborative projects mean communicatively mediated self-determination. Collaborative projects are the very manifestation and measure of the self-determination of their participants. The feeling of helplessness in the face of geopolitical forces and structures is a direct outgrowth of the promotion of individualist ideology and the undermining of the conditions for active participation in social life.

Keywords: collaborative projects; self-determination
