What are Human Rights?

H. Bouillon

The Liberal Institute of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation

Abstract: he Universal Declaration of Human Rights consists of logically inconsistent bundle of rights and claim-rights. Hardy Bouillon demonstrates in this paper that this problem can only be solved if human rights are put in terms of property rights. Claim-rights are always connected with violations of property rights and therefore capable of eroding human rights in general
