Human Dignity and Human Rights: Rethinking the Connection
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
Human rights instruments such as the Universal Declaration presuppose a tight connection between possessing dignity and having human rights. Philosophical accounts frequently echo this presupposition, taking dignity to name the inherent quality that serves as a foundation for human rights. The aim of this workshop is to challenge this presumed connection between human dignity and human rights, and provide a forum to explore alternatives.
This workshop is organized as part of the “Conferring Dignity in Human Rights and Healthcare” project, funded by the Australian Research Council’s Discovery Project scheme.
