Abstract

A “crisis” of international human rights is under way. This article focuseson the “neoliberalism and human rights” debate. It argues that thecurrent human rights crisis hinges on the evolution of neoliberalism as a“totalizing project”. A way out may be provided by the notion of the“human person” conceived as the individual in his/her uniqueness andcomplexity against any form of (market-induced or other) massification.The article concludes by suggesting that we place the (decommodified)human person, empathy, and school/education center stage.
