    Aims and Scope

    Law & Ethics of Human Rights (LEHR) 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.
