Humanity's Law

Ruti Teitel

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents the humanity law framework as an interpretive lens, examining how its teleology has informed and shaped—consciously or, often, unconsciously—the way courts and tribunals (international, regional, and domestic) interpret and apply the law that governs the disputes before them. Some of the underlying issues include: To what extent do individual rights stop at state borders? To what extent are individual rights to be recognized and enforced transnationally? To what extent are interpretations through the lenses of the humanity law framework reshaping the categories of the discourse that are dominant among political actors, and the multiple agents of globalization?

Keywords:   interpretive, humanity, transnational, borders, globalization, law, legal
