The Right to Human Dignity: How Constitutions are Guaranteeing it and How Courts are Protecting it Around the World


Constitutions around the world protect the right to human dignity and constitutional courts are being asked to decide whether particular governmental actions - from holding a prisoner in solitary confinement, to prohibiting abortion, to keeping the minimum wage low - violates this right.

This talk will survey how the right to dignity is changing constitutional law around the world.
