Rights and Liberties

Rights and liberties define the boundaries of state action and the obligations owed by states to citizens and by citizens to states. Sunwater explores the evolution of rights and liberties from prehistory up to the present day from a multidisciplinary perspective, using the insights of philosophy, law, history, the natural sciences. Sunwater explores the purposes and limits of rights, the potential conflict among rights, and the question of which rights should be protected.
