Writing for university and law school students, Nickel (law and philosophy, Arizona State U.) makes the point that the idea of human rights makes good sense. He also believes that people should understand and feel free to appeal on the grounds of human rights. He starts with theories underlying the contemporary idea of human rights and the starting points for justifying human rights, the framework necessary to justify human rights, specific instances such as due process and terrorist emergencies, economic liberty as a fundamental freedom, social rights as human rights, the rights of minorities, and the process of making sense of human rights. He supplies significant documents that have established human rights, including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
