Promises, Rights and Claims

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Abstract in Undetermined
The paper argues that promise rights presuppose independently existing (if not pre-existing) claims. The argument relies on the Bifurcation Thesis, according to which all claims, and all rights, can be exhaustively divided into two categories: capacity based and exercise based.
