              Human Rights Law and Personal Identity
               

              Human Rights Law and Personal Identity (Paperback)

              This book explores the role human rights law plays in the formation, and protection, of our personal identities. Drawing from a range of disciplines, Jill Marshall examines how human rights law includes and excludes specific types of identity, which feed into moral norms of human... freedom and human dignity and their translation into legal rights. The book takes on a three part structure. Part I traces the definition of identity, and follows the evolution of, and protects, a right to personal identity and personality within human rights law. It specifically examines the development of a right to personal identity as property, the inter-subjective nature of identity, and the intercession of power and inequality. Part II evaluates past and contemporary attempts to describe the core of personal identity, including theories concerning the soul, the rational mind, and the growing influence of neuroscience and genetics in explaining what it means to be human. It also explores the inter-relation and conflict between universal principles and culturally specific rights. Part III focuses on issues and case law that can be interpreted as allowing self-determination. Marshall argues that while in an age of individual identity, people are increasingly obliged to live in conformed ways, pushing out identities that do not fit with what is acceptable. Drawing on feminist theory, the book concludes by arguing how human rights law would be better interpreted as a force to enable respect for human dignity and freedom, interpreted as empowerment and self-determination whilst acknowledging our inter-subjective identities. In drawing on socio-legal, philosophical, biological and feminist outlooks, this book is truly interdisciplinary, and will be of great interest and use to scholars and students of human rights law, legal and social theory, gender and cultural studies.

              While some feminists seek to use ideas of the 'universal human subject' to include women, others argue that such ideas are intrinsically masculine and exclude the feminine. This book analyzes and critiques 'second wave' feminists who discuss how philosophers such as Plato and Ari...stotle, Descartes, Hobbes and Kant regard human beings and their capacities. The author suggests adopting an inclusive universal concept of the human being, drawn from ideas of positive liberty from the liberal tradition, Hegelian ideas of the formation of the free human being in society, and care ethics. The book links this theoretical perspective to international human rights and humanitarian law, drawing together areas of theory usually presented separately. These include the liberal theory of the individual (particularly individual freedom, feminist critiques and theories of subjectivity), globalization and global identity issues and the theory of human rights law, with the focus resting on human subjectivity and ethics. While the focus is on Anglo-American jurisprudence, this is combined with continental philosophy, international human rights issues and a Yugoslav war crimes case study.

              This book explores the development and meaning of a right to personal identity which now exists in human rights law. The book questions how a person's personal identity is reflected in human rights law, and what exactly this personal identity is which is accorded legal protection... under human rights law. The book considers the issue from a theoretical as well as a a jurisprudential perspective, examining the provisions related the burgeoning right to personal identity contained in the UDHR, ICCPR, regional human rights treaties, in particular the ECHR, and the Human Rights Act in the UK. The book looks at a number of issues including theories that explain how the person or self is incorporated into law and the legal framework, whether our personal identity can be said to be fixed or fluid and the legal protection available entitling us to keep information about ourselves private. The book analyses the connections between legal interpretations of personal identity and what personal identity means in different disciplines including philosophy, psychology, sociology, biology and neuroscience. The book shows how the legal framework is informed by philosophy and the rational view of the person. As there are different interpretations of what personal identity means, it argues that law is in danger of using a constraining interpretation of personal identity.
