Promises, Rights and Claims

Alm, David LU (2011) In Law and Philosophy 30(1). p.51-76
Abstract (Swedish)
Abstract in Undetermined

The paper argues that promise rights presuppose independently existing (if not pre-existing) claims. The argument relies on the Bifurcation Thesis, according to which all claims, and all rights, can be exhaustively divided into two categories: capacity based and exercise based.
