Example text

Once again, the appeal to this doctrine is not itself based in moral human rights aims, but rather limits those aims. 26 Essentially, the above-listed permitted constraints on rights claims are concessions to the value of sovereign, autonomous and separate political communities (Weil 1983). Bodies entrusted with adjudication of human rights law must accommodate both the aims that might be derived form pure individual rights standards (NRM), and this value. Yet, from the point of view of NRM, it is precisely against the interests and aims of a community that the rights are supposed to be held.

29 Thus, provisions which go towards it, such as the requirement to accommodate the economic well-being of a society, are not human rights provisions. There is no imperative to read economic well-being as ‘only that economic well-being that advances human rights’. Indeed the ECHR has never read it that way, nor has the HRC ever read public order, or public health and morals as only measures in those categories which advance human rights. Second, as interpretivists themselves admit, a key role of human rights is to act as a break or limit on the autonomy of a political community or considerations of communal fairness (Dworkin 1977:194; Letsas 2004:304–5).

The legislation of human rights 18 Operations in peacetime are more constrained (by IHRL) as a matter of principle. Thus, the goal in a security operation may include securing public order, but it will also include arresting those against whom the operation is carried out. The operation is constrained to safeguard these individuals’ right to life as much as the circumstances allow, whether they are armed or not. The goal in military operations is a military one, and so is not constrained in this way.
