Notes: The journal in which this essay appears has a strong reputation in the sphere of political philosophy. The essay makes a distinct contribution by offering, among other things, an analysis of human rights law that aplies John Rawls's concept of reflective equilibrium. The analysis offered is not, however, a simple application of Rawls. It also draws on Thomas Nagel's account of agent-relative and agent-neutral reasons for action in order to refine the Rawlsian analysis.
