In “Rethinking Indivisibility” James Nickel presents a system that can provide a consistent explanation of the relationship between the expanding group of human rights. Nickel points out the UN’s Proclamation of Tehran which supports Henry Shue’s claim that people cannot enjoy rights without having security and minimum economical provisions.
