The Idea of Human Rights in Global Contexts: The Liberty Dimension

  • Marie-Luisa FrickEmail author
Chapter

Abstract

In this chapter, the previously outlined method of evaluating the compatibility of certain views and practices with human rights is applied to the liberty dimension of human rights. After exploring possible conflicts between human rights and worldviews centering upon organic-collective or non-self ontologies, I analyze restrictions of specific human rights with reference to “greater” collective goods (biopolitical integrity; social harmony; public morality; security).
