Thisbook takes a distinctive and innovative approach to a relatively under-exploredquestion, namely: Why do we have human rights? Much political discourse simplyproceeds from the idea that humans have rights because they are human withoutseriously interrogating this notion. EgalitarianRights Recognition offers an account of how human rights are created andhow they may be seen to be legitimate: rights are created through socialrecognition. By combining readings of 19th Century Englishphilosopher T.H. Green with 20th Century political theorist HannahArendt, the author constructs a new theory of the social recognition of rights.He challenges both the standard 'natural rights' approach and also the mainaccounts of the social recognition of rights which tend to portray socialrecognition as settled norms or established ways of acting. In contrast, Hann putsforward a 10-point account of the dynamic and contingent social recognition ofhuman rights, which emphasises the importance of meaningful socio-economicequality.
