    Andrew Schaap (2011). Enacting the Right to Have Rights: Jacques Rancière's Critique of Hannah Arendt. European Journal of Political Theory 10 (1):22-45.
    In her influential discussion of the plight of stateless people, Hannah Arendt invokes the ‘right to have rights’ as the one true human right. In doing so she establishes an aporia. If statelessness corresponds not only to a situation of rightlessness but also to a life deprived of public appearance, how could those excluded from politics possibly claim the right to have rights?

    Andrew Schaap (2003). Political Grounds for Forgiveness. Contemporary Political Theory 2 (1):77.
    This article is intended as a response rather than counterpoint to Bennett's careful argument that amnesty cannot amount to an act of collective forgiveness. I agree that a state cannot forgive perpetrators of grave human rights violations. However, I am concerned that conceiving the question of amnesty strictly in terms of a choice between the Art of Compromise or the Hard Line of retribution may unduly limit our understanding of the potential relation between amnesty and forgiveness in politics. To show (...)
