Document Summary

Class 4 laws2105c january 28, 2014. No consensus about what human rights really are; what they are supposed to do; where we get them. Are human rights enforceable in law: depends on where. Human rights are regarded today as a part of international law. Human rights are legal obligations or acknowledgements by a state that it is taking on legal obligations towards individuals and peoples that must be protected by law. Most enforceable human rights are ones in treaties; multilateral treaties are the most effective form, which are treaties among more than two states: a treaty between two states is a bilateral treaty. There are other sources of human rights, though treaties are most prominent sources. Ideals of human rights have been around for at least few centuries: religious texts, documents, etc. that talk about values, rules, norms; precursors or forerunners of human rights norms.
