    Human Rights and Threats Concerning Future People: A Sufficientarian Proposal.Jos Philips - 2016 - In Gerhard Bos & Marcus Düwell (eds.), Human Rights and Threats concerning Future People: a Sufficientarian Proposal. London: Routledge. pp. 82-94.
    Can human rights incorporate future people and their interests, considering all the risks and uncertainties by which these interests are surrounded? Given problems such as climate change, resource depletion and pollution, human rights cannot afford not to be able to do this if they are to remain relevant. On the other hand, taking future people on board may lead to (another) multiplication of human rights claims, and this is hardly good news either. Therefore, an adequate account of how to incorporate (...)

    Is There a Moral Case for Fair Trade Products? On the Moral Duty for Consumers to Buy and Governments to Support Fair Trade Products.Jos Philips - 2008 - In The Impact of Fair Trade. pp. 239-250.
    Could there be a moral duty for consumers to buy fair trade products? Even more dramatically, could there be a moral duty for governments to support fair trade products? This essay argues that the answer to both questions may well be affirmative – where I am thinking of consumers and governments of (relatively) affluent countries such as Western countries. In relation to the first question, the existence of a moral duty to buy fair trade products goes against the idea that, (...)

    A Critique Of Three Recent Studies On Morality´s Demands: Murphy, Mulgan, Cullity The Issue Of Cost.Jos Philips - 2008 - Ethic@ - An International Journal for Moral Philosophy 7 (1):2-13.
    This paper critically discusses three studies about the question of how much morality may demand of moral agents. These studies may together constitute the most prominent literature about this question to emerge in recent years. In reverse order, they are: Garrett Cullity’s The Moral Demands of Affluence , Tim Mulgan’s The Demands of Consequentialism , and Liam Murphy’s Moral Demands in Nonideal Theory . The paper’s first part very briefly presents the position that these studies defend, and in addition it (...)

    On Setting Priorities Among Human Rights.Jos Philips - 2014 - Human Rights Review 15 (3):239-257.
    Should conflicts among human rights be dealt with by including general principles for priority setting at some prominent place in the practice of human rights? This essay argues that neither setting prominent and principled priorities nor a case-by-case approach are likely to be defensible as general solutions. The main reasons concern how best to realize all human rights for all. Conflicts among human rights are more defensibly addressed by checking whether the conflict has been correctly diagnosed: Do human rights as (...)

    Do Universities Have Moral Duties with Regard to a Human Right to Health? In Defense of Some Proposals by UAEM 1.Jos Philips - 2018 - Ethics and Economics 15 (1).
    This article argues that universities have duties to negotiate contracts with the pharmaceutical industry that are favourable to the world’s poor, and to do more research into diseases which disproportionately strike the global poor. It is argued that these duties are related to human rights (in particular to a human right to health) and that they are therefore very weighty. Furthermore, these duties are in line with some of the most important things that Universities Allied for Essential Medicines (UAEM), a (...)

    NGO Duties in Relation to Human Rights. A Closer Look at One Proposal.Jos Philips - 2010 - Ethics and Economics 7 (2):1-19.
    This paper investigates the moral duties that human rights NGOs, such as Amnesty International, and development NGOs, such as Oxfam, have in relation to human rights – especially in relation to the human right to a decent standard of living. The mentioned NGOs are powerful new agents on the global scene, and according to many they might be duty-bearers in relation to human rights. However, until now their moral duties have hardly been investigated. The present paper investigates NGO duties in (...)

  9. Disability and Universal Human Rights: Legal, Ethical, and Conceptual Implications of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.Joel Anderson & Jos Philips - 2012 - Utrecht: Netherlands Institute of Human Rights.
    The 2008 UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) provides a landmark articulation of the universality of human rights. It affirms in strong terms that all human beings have a claim to full inclusion and equal participation in society, something denied to many because of disability. The CRPD is an ambitious document with far-reaching and fundamental implications. This interdisciplinary collection of essays takes up pressing philosophical, legal, and practical issues raised by the CRPD and the ongoing process (...)

    Actualizing Human Rights: Global Inequality, Future People, and Motivation.Jos Philips - 2020 - London: Routledge.
    This book argues that ultimately human rights can be actualized, in two senses. By answering important challenges to them, the real-world relevance of human rights can be brought out; and people worldwide can be motivated as needed for realizing human rights. Taking a perspective from moral and political philosophy, the book focuses on two challenges to human rights that have until now received little attention, but that need to be addressed if human rights are to remain plausible as a global (...)

  12. Being Rich in a Poor World: On What Rich People Like Us Can Do at Little Cost.Jos Philips - 2008 - Etica E Politica 10 (1).
    One very important question about poverty is what rich people like us should do to fight it. In this article, I argue that we can, at little cost to ourselves, give tithes of our money and live within our so-called ‘ecological footprint’. At the end of the article, it is argued that we should, morally, do these things.

  13. Poverty: Some Key Conceptual Choices, and Its Link with Justice and Human Rights.Jos Philips - 2017 - In W. M. Speelman (ed.), Poverty as Problem and as Path. Münster/New York: Aschendorff. pp. 71-82.
    This chapter outlines and defends a number of key conceptual choices with regard to poverty: poverty is regarded as material; as related to a lack of real freedoms; as involuntary; as multidimensional; as objective; and as in important respects absolute, yet time-relative. The chapter also considers the resulting links between poverty on the one hand and justice and human rights on the other.
