Human Rights and the Care of the Self

Wednesday 26 August 12:30-2:00pm
Room 148, RC Mills Building
University of Sydney

Dr Alex Lefebvre from the University of Sydney proposes that the consistent and historic function of human rights is to inspire individuals to strive towards a better way of life. He will sketch a new theory of human rights from the perspective of the care for one's own self by identifying certain techniques prescribed in human rights law and literature that aim to effect such transformations.
