This chapter works out the implications of the account for a selection of lower-level human rights. Topics discussed include the discrepancies between two lists of human rights — the one from the best philosophical account and the other from the most authoritative declarations in international law; the list of human rights emerging from the personhood account; civil and political rights, aims and status of international law; economic, social, and cultural rights; and the future of international lists of human rights.

Keywords:   human rights, international law, personhood, civil rights, political rights
