All Rights All Around the World (Jan. 29, 2011)

Social work & human rights
Manila Bulletin Publishing Corporation
Preview: “The links between social work and human rights are explicit. Social workers are human rights workers. A human approach to social work education provides the students a framework for their advocacy, direct service and community development efforts. A human rights perspective gives social work practitioners the ability to transform knowledge into empathy, and empathy into action.”

UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights
The Wall Street Journal
Preview: “Which specific Articles are acceptable to or compatible with the Libertarian worldview, which must be rejected on principle?”

Why deny prisoners the vote?
The Guardian
Preview: “Is the right to vote a fundamental human right? You could be forgiven for assuming that the answer is yes, given the way that so many modern politicians talk about it. Yet the phrase “right to vote” does not occur in the universal declaration of human rights adopted by the United Nations in 1948. Nor is it to be found in the European convention on human rights of two years later.”
