Is There a Human Right to Resistance?

Blunt, G. D. ORCID: 0000-0002-9569-090X (2017). Is There a Human Right to Resistance?. Human Rights Quarterly, 39(4), pp. 860-881. doi: 10.1353/hrq.2017.0052


This article is premised on the idea that global poverty is the foreseeable
and avoidable by-product of the international system. This position is held
by many cosmopolitans, but rarely do they deal with the consequences of
this claim. This paper will examine the idea of a right to resistance in the face of global poverty. It will argue that a right to resistance is a necessary component of the political conception of human rights. It will also be argued that it is latent in some major documents and declarations to the point that it can be considered an emerging practice.
