The Right to Have Rights

Alison Kesby

Oxford University Press

Chapter 2 examines the emancipatory potential and limits of the right to have rights conceived in terms of the right to a nationality. Four different conceptions of the right are examined and critiqued—the formal, human rights, democratic governance, and substantive belonging approaches, with the author favouring the latter. Whichever conception is adopted, however, it is argued that nationality risks usurping humanity such that the subject of rights becomes the national alone.
