Abstrakt

Pragmatism offers a platform for posing relevant questions. This article uses a pragmatic point of departure to question a natural law conception of human rights and to take a closer look at three pressing human rights problems: The human rights situation in states with little or no state capacity; the revision and adaptation of human rights law; and the not straightforward relationship betweemn human rights and democracy.
