(p.165) 10 Legislative Recognition and Implementation
The Moral Dimensions of Human Rights

Carl Wellman

Oxford University Press

This chapter assesses the legislative recognition of human rights. Basal human rights ought to be recognized and entrenched in a written constitution in order to protect them more firmly. But derived human rights usually ought to be recognized by legislation, especially when they are very specific or need to be applied to rapidly changing circumstances. This chapter also assesses the legislative implementation of human rights, both moral human rights and international human rights.

Keywords:   legislation, recognition, Implementation, Basal human rights, derived human rights, entrenched, written constitution, changing circumstances
