Different Kinds of Rights



Steven M. Wise

Legal Correlates

Posted: Sep 10, 2013


In this video Steve Wise, President of the Nonhuman Rights Project, talks about fuzzy rights and the legal aspects behind different kinds of rights.

There are all kinds of rights and when people talk about rights, sometimes they do it in a really fuzzy way. In this segment from his interview with Gooseberry Productions, Steve talks about some of the different kinds of rights and explains different legal theories regarding whether certain rights only apply within a “moral community.”

The Nonhuman Rights Project is the only organization working toward actual LEGAL rights for members of species other than our own. Our mission is to change the common law status of at least some nonhuman animals from mere “things,” which lack the capacity to possess any legal right, to “persons,” who possess such fundamental rights as bodily integrity and bodily liberty, and those other legal rights to which evolving standards of morality, scientific discovery, and human experience entitle them. Our first cases are being prepared for filing in 2013. Your support of this work is deeply appreciated.

Steven M. Wise is also a keynote speaker for the upcoming “Personhood Beyond the Human” conference at Yale Univ. Dec. 6-8, 2013.
