  2. Human Rights: The Hard Questions.Chris Brown, Neil Walker, Rex Martin, Alison Dundes Renteln, Peter Jones & Ayelet Shachar - 2013 - Cambridge University Press.
    The United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. A burgeoning human rights movement followed, yielding many treaties and new international institutions and shaping the constitutions and laws of many states. Yet human rights continue to be contested politically and legally and there is substantial philosophical and theoretical debate over their foundations and implications.

    Reconciling MacCormick: Constitutional Pluralism and the Unity of Practical Reason.Neil Walker - 2011 - Ratio Juris 24 (4):369-385.
    This article begins by assessing the ways in which the life and work of Neil MacCormick exemplified a dual commitment to the local and particular—especially through his advocacy of nationalism—and to the international and the universal. It then concentrates on one of the key tensions in his work which reflected that duality, namely the tension between his longstanding endorsement of constitutional pluralism—and so of the separate integrity of different “local” constitutional orders—and his belief in some kind of unity, and so (...)
