Symposium on Rights, 23 October, Stirling

On Monday 23rd October there will be a symposium on themes from Rowan Cruft’s forthcoming Human Rights, Ownership, and the Individual (OUP).  There is a growing literature on the philosophy of human rights that rarely engages with earlier work on the nature of rights, or on property’s canonical place in the history of rights theory. This symposium brings together legal, moral, and political philosophers to consider these issues in relation to Rowan Cruft’s forthcoming book.  For more information, see


Speakers: Rowan Cruft (Stirling), Tom Dougherty (Cambridge), Katrin Flikschuh (LSE), Zofia Stemplowska (Oxford), and Victor Tadros (Warwick).
Venue: Room C1/2, Pathfoot Building, University of Stirling.
Time: Registration 9.30; talks begin at 10; the last talk will end at 5.
