    Aims and Scope

    Law & Ethics of Human Rights aspires to analyze and clarify the concepts of moral and legal rights, and to contribute to conflict resolution in human rights law. Each issue of LEHR focuses on one contemporary dilemma that raises major moral and legal questions. Each such dilemma is examined using an interdisciplinary approach to human rights law, an approach which strives to create associations between legal provisions and the philosophical thinking underlying them. Moreover, it is our hope that publishing the work of distinguished scholars from various countries will mitigate the problem of culturally insensitive application of human rights norms.

    Supplementary Information


    Type of Publication:

    Law & Ethics of Human Rights (LEHR) is a journal devoted to human rights law and its intersection with ethics, political theory, and policy. Each issue focuses on one contemporary human rights dilemma that raises major legal and moral questions, together with the legal provisions and the philosophical thinking underlying them. Topics include multiculturalism and anti-discrimination, the use of demographic considerations to shape public policy, international labor rights and regulations, and rights, balancing, and proportionality. Edited by some of the world's most distinguished human rights scholars, from leading international law schools such as Harvard, Princeton, and Tel Aviv University, LEHR is of interest to ethicists, policy researchers, government practitioners, as well as law scholars.
