Human dignity and human rights (2018)

in: Oxford scholarship online

Abstract

Human dignity - social movements invoke it, several national constitutions enshrine it, and it features prominently in international human rights documents. But what is human dignity, why is it important, and what is its relationship to human rights? This text offers a sophisticated and comprehensive defence of the view that human dignity is the moral heart of human rights.
