What is a human right? How can we tell whether a proposed human right really is one? How do we establish the content of particular human rights, and how do we resolve conflicts between them? These are pressing questions for philosophers, political theorists, jurisprudents, international lawyers, and activists. James Griffin offers answers in his compelling new investigation of the foundations of human rights. First, On Human Rights traces the idea of a natural right from its origin in the late Middle Ages, when the rights were seen as deriving from natural laws, through the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, when the original theological background was progressively dropped and 'natural law' emptied of most of its original meaning. By the end of the Enlightenment, the term 'human rights' (droits de l'homme) appeared, marking the purge of the theological background. But the Enlightenment, in putting nothing in its place, left us with an unsatisfactory, incomplete idea of a human right. Griffin shows how the language of human rights has become debased. There are scarcely any accepted criteria, either in the academic or the public sphere, for correct use of the term. He takes on the task of showing the way towards a determinate concept of human rights, based on their relation to the human status that we all share. He works from certain paradigm cases, such as freedom of expression and freedom of worship, to more disputed cases such as welfare rights - for instance the idea of a human right to health. His goal is a substantive account of human rights - an account with enough content to tell us whether proposed rights really are rights. Griffin emphasizes the practical as well as theoretical urgency of this goal: as the United Nations recognized in 1948 with its Universal Declaration, the idea of human rights has considerable power to improve the lot of humanity around the world. We can't do without the idea of human rights, and we need to get clear about it. It is our job now - the job of this book - to influence and develop the unsettled discourse of human rights so as to complete the incomplete idea.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Jura - Offentliches Recht / Staatsrecht / Grundrechte, Note: 9, Universitat Hamburg, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die nationale Menschrechtsinstitution" stellt eine neue Klasse der Organisationen zum Schutz und der Forderung des Menschenrechtsschutzes dar. Durch ihre Stellung als unabhangige, aber dennoch regierungsnahe Institution hat sie aufgrund der mannigfachen Dialoge mit staatlichen Stellen und der Kooperation mit Nichtregierungsorganisationen (NGO) und der Zivilgesellschaft eine einzigartige Bruckenfunktion, die eine grosse Chance fur die Verstandigung und Zusammenarbeit zwischen den einzelnen Akteuren auf staatlicher und nichtstaatlicher Ebene darstellt. Ihre normative Grundlage leitet die nationale MRI von dem durch die Vereinten Nationen geschaffenen unverbindlichen internationalen Standard, den sogenannten Pariser Prinzipien," ab. Diese Seminararbeit beleuchtet zunachst den historischen Rahmen hinsichtlich der Entwicklung dieses Standards sowie die darin allgemein fur nationale MRI vorgeschlagenen Funktionen, Befugnisse und Strukturen. Erlautert wird auch das Prozedere der Anerkennung von nationalen MRI und die sich im Laufe der vergangenen Jahre entwickelte Realitat von vier verschiedenen Institutionstypen. Im anschliessenden Teil II wird anhand einiger Landerbeispiele kritisch aufgezeigt, inwieweit Unterschiede in der konkreten Ausgestaltung der einzelnen Institutionstypen bestehen. In diesem Kontext werden bestehende Mangel in der Umsetzung des internationalen Standards aufgezeigt und gegebenenfalls Anregungen fur Verbesserungen gemacht. Im anschliessenden Vergleich der verschiedenen Institutionstypen wird eine gewisse Hierarchie der Befugnisse und Wirkmachtigkeit deutlich; als Exkurs wird an dieser Stelle die Situation der nationalen MRI in Deutschland hinsichtlich eines moglichen oder notwendigen Typenwechsels diskutiert. In Teil III wird die Wirkmachtigkeit der nationalen MRI erlautert. Es wird a

Das große Buch des Nobelpreisträgers: Eine Programmschrift, die ökonomische Vernunft, politischen Realismus und soziale Verantwortung zusammenführt. Mit diesem Buch hat Sen eine Schneise in die Globalisierungsdebatte geschlagen. Als einer der bedeutenden Wirtschaftstheoretiker der Gegenwart fordert er die Moral in der Marktwirtschaft ein und packt das Weltproblem Nr. 1 an: die sich immer weiter öffnende Schere zwischen dem global agierenden Turbokapitalismus und der zunehmenden Arbeitslosigkeit und Verarmung. Dieses engagierte Buch hat er für die breite Öffentlichkeit geschrieben, eindringlich stellt er dar, daß Freiheit, Gleichheit und Solidarität keine abstrakten Ideale sind, sondern fundamentale Voraussetzungen für eine prosperierende, gerechte Weltwirtschaft.

Selected by Choice magazine as an Outstanding Academic Book for 1999 Born of a shared revulsion against the horrors of the Holocaust, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights has become the single most important statement of international ethics. It was inspired by and reflects the full scope of President Franklin Roosevelt's famous four freedoms: "the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want, and the freedom from fear." Written by a UN commission led by Eleanor Roosevelt and adopted in 1948, the Declaration has become the moral backbone of more than two hundred human rights instruments that are now a part of our world. The result of a truly international negotiating process, the document has been a source of hope and inspiration to thousands of groups and millions of oppressed individuals.

Human rights are invoked on many occasions. But are they more than lofty values and abstract principles? In providing a concise but comprehensive overview of international human rights protection at the global and regional levels, this book offers an introduction to the ideas, conceptual underpinnings, and doctrine of international human rights law including the sources, legal nature, and scope of application of human rights obligations. The issues of implementation and enforceability at the domestic, regional, and universal level are explored, and the impact of the recently established Human Rights Council is assessed. The substantive guarantees covering economic, social, and cultural as well as civil and political rights based on the case law of UN treaty bodies and relevant regional courts are evaluated. This book shows that human rights are real rights creating legal entitlements for those who are protected by them and imposing legal obligations on those bound by them. It explores the various mechanisms set up by the international community to monitor the implementation of human rights guarantees and to decide individual cases brought to the attention of human rights courts and quasi-judicial bodies at the international level. Its last part contains a detailed exploration of the meanings of human rights guarantees, such as the right to life, the prohibition of torture, non-discrimination, economic rights, and many others.

This book provides the first comprehensive assessment of the contribution of the United Nations to the human rights situation of the Bahá ís in Iran. It does this by examining the theoretical, legal, institutional and political dimensions of this issue in detail. The situation of the Bahá í community in Iran between 1979 and 2002 provides a particularly good test case for the international community due to its clarity. By giving attention to a singular case within a discrete time frame, this book is able to effectively examine the impact of UN human rights protection. Attention is given in this study to the clash between religion and human rights, the protection of freedom of religion or belief in international law, the workings of UN human rights charter-based and treaty bodies and their various mechanisms, and recommendations for the resolution of the Bahá í human rights situation in Iran.
