Chapter 5: Capital punishment as a contested human rights issue
Open access

In this and the next two chapters, I pursue the implications of one or another part of the morality of human rights for three human-rights-based controversies, beginning here with controversy concerning capital punishment: Does capital punishment violate the morality of human rights? In the next two chapters, I discuss the controversies concerning, respectively, the criminalization of abortion and the exclusion of same-sex couples from civil marriage.
