9780199272761: Human Rights Transformed: Positive Rights and Positive Duties

Human rights have traditionally been understood as protecting individual freedom against intrusion by the State. In this book, Sandra Fredman argues that this understanding requires radical revision. Human rights are based on a far richer view of freedom, which goes beyond being let alone, and instead pays attention to individuals' ability to exercise their rights.

This view fundamentally shifts the focus of human rights. As well as restraining the State, human rights require the State to act positively to remove barriers and facilitate the exercise of freedom. This in turn breaks down traditional distinctions between civil and political rights and socio-economic rights. Instead, all rights give rise to a range of duties, both negative and positive. However, because positive duties have for so long been regarded as a question of policy or aspiration, little sustained attention has been given to their role in actualising human rights. Drawing on comparative experience from India, South Africa, the European Convention on Human Rights, the European Union, Canada and the UK, this book aims to create a theoretical and applied framework for understanding positive human rights duties.

Part I elaborates the values of freedom, equality, and solidarity underpinning a positive approach to human rights duties, and argues that the dichotomy between democracy and human rights is misplaced. Instead, positive human rights duties should strengthen rather than substitute for democracy, particularly in the face of globalization and privatization. Part II considers justiciability, fashioning a democratic role for the courts based on their potential to stimulate deliberative democracy in the wider environment. Part III applies this framework to key positive duties, particularly substantive equality and positive duties to provide, traditionally associated with the Welfare State or socioeconomic rights.

About the Author:


Sandra Fredman is Professor of Law at Oxford University and Fellow of Exeter College, Oxford. In 2000, she became the first woman professor in the Oxford law faculty and she was elected a Fellow of the British Academy in 2005. She has also been active in the policy field, including acting as an expert advisor on a range of human rights, equality, and labour law issues in the EU, Northern Ireland, the UK and Canada. She is a barrister, practising as an academic consultant at Old Square Chambers.

Review:


"[The volume] impressively refutes previously raised objections to social rights, develops the field with a truly universal vision and sense of the socio-philosophical aspects of the subject, and thereby achieves something undeniably important for the theoretical foundations of social rights" - Eberhard Eichenhofer, University of Jena


"This book is a sustained attempt to refocus the human rights debate and promote a more accurate picture of the field. It succeeds in this aim...Professor Fredman is to be commended for confronting directly a view of human rights that consistently impedes sensible debate...the book encourages innovation, whether through the courts or in the conversations that drive law, policy and practice forward...As work continues to explore how human rights objectives become credibly and effectively embedded within national traditions and contexts (for the overriding purpose of achieving just political, social and legal outcomes), this book is an impressive and welcome contribution which should generate more informed political and legal debate." - Colin Harvey, The Modern Law Review (72)6, 2009


"...a timely and valuable contribution to this growing field...Human Rights Transformed: Positive Rights and Positive Duties addresses difficult questions about courts and human rights with both insight and perception, covering a broad range of comparative experience in doing so. Fredman's book is a substantial contribution to theoretical and legal debates about human rights and social justice. Its subject matter resonates well with topics in law, socio-legal studies, politics and development studies. It is highly recommended." - Cathi Albertyn, Public Law 2010
