The abuse of workers in export processing zones in developing countries, the undignified treatment of elderly people in care homes, and the dangers for internet users' privacy arising from private companies' control of their data are prominent examples of how our most fundamental interests are increasingly jeopardized by powerful private actors. Jean Thomas argues that, while these interests are protected by human and constitutional rights in relation to the state, no similar protections exist in relations among private actors. To address this problem, she develops a theoretical framework for the application of human and constitutional rights among private actors.

The author proposes a theory of private liability for public rights violations that allows us to answer the question: who should bear the duties associated with human and constitutional rights in the private sphere? And what do private actors owe one another in respect of the interests protected by these rights? In advancing a model of rights that makes the application of public rights among private actors morally plausible and institutionally feasible, the book also illuminates the broader conceptual question of what rights are.

About the Author:


Jean Thomas

Jean Thomas is Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Law at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. After her JD (Juris Doctor) studies at the University of Toronto, she completed her JSD (Doctor of Juridicial Science) at New York University. She has been a post-doctoral fellow at Stanford's McCoy Family Center for Ethics in Society and a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute. Thomas's research centres on questions of legal theory, rights theory in particular, and on interdisciplinary questions of legal, political, and moral philosophy.

Review:


"Public Rights, Private Relations is a work of great scope, imagination, and intelligence. By focusing upon certain bedrock theoretical commitments, along with some of the most fundamental and widespread elements of our public law practices, Thomas has crafted a consensus-driven model of public law rights." -- Matthew Grellette, The Modern Law Review
