Human Rights · Feminist and Gender-Philosophical Perspectives: Publication series "Women* Philosophers at Work. A Series of SWIP Austria"

Publications: BookCollection


In this volume thirteen essays highlight the subject of human rights from different points of view. The guiding questions include the following: Can feminists and gender researchers ground their commitment to greater gender justice in human rights? Is there a single concept of human rights? Do human rights include individual rights or group rights? Are the demands of human rights addressed to institutions or to individuals? Is there an intrinsic moment of Eurocentrism within human rights? Are human rights a moral or legal measure, or somewhere in between? Who is recognized as a human being?
