The Sacredness of the Person: A New Genealogy of Human Rights

Writer observe: Alex Skinner (Translator)

Conventional knowledge holds that human rights emerged from the spirit of the French Revolution, itself a political expression of the French Enlightenment, which was once as a rule obvious as anticlerical and anti-Christian and anti-religious.

An replacement interpretation contends that the present human rights regime is the results of the Judeo-Christian culture, paved via the knowledge of the human individual imparted via the Christian gospels. Drawing on sociologists akin to Durkheim and Weber and Troetsch, Joas units out a brand new direction and proposes an alternate family tree.

He proposes that the fashionable trust in human rights and common human dignity is the results of a strategy of "sacralization," during which each individual has more and more been seen as sacred. milestones of this approach within the smooth period, Joas issues out, have been the abolition of torture and slavery--common practices within the pre-18th century West. This means of "sacralization" culminates within the 1948 common announcement of Human Rights, demonstrating how values--what Joas calls worth generalization--can shift through the years and mirror human development.

Involvement in the drug trade, and indeed, drug use, brings many children and young people into contact with criminality and the criminal justice system. Many suffer violence and abuse at the hands of gangs and other young people, but also law enforcement and personnel in detention facilities. All such abuse must, of course, be investigated, and those responsible held to account.  For children and young people who do come into contact with the criminal justice system, juvenile justice standards must be applied, including detention as a measure of last resort, and the right to a fair trial in a childfriendly justice system—often denied in the context of detention for drug dependence ‘treatment’ or ‘sweeps’ of street children.
