Summary:People respond passionately to issues of human rights, partly because they frame our expectations of fair treatment, equity and justice. Increasingly, work within the human services is influenced by rights-based discourses. Knowledge about the nature and scope of human rights and their attendant moral assumptions are essential theoretical resources for human service workers faced with the ethical complexities of daily practice.
