Human Rights and the Limits of Constitutional Theory

Harvard Law School

Abstract:     
The question of what is truly just in the matter of a country's currently established human-rights interpretations appears not to be the same as the question of what it is morally right to do by way of coercively effectuating a given set of such interpretations. There are grounds for contending that acts of support for a coercive political regime can be justified morally on the condition that the regime's prevailing human-rights interpretations are made continuously available to effective, democratic critical re-examination. However, it is not possible ever finally to know whether that condition is satisfied.
