5: Filling out Citizenship: Citizenship Rights, Constitutional Rights and Human Rights


The focus in this chapter is on the relationship between citizenship rights, constitutional rights and human rights. This chapter closes off the second part of the book, with a reflection on how we understand rights in a constitutional context. The main themes here concern the scope and enforceability of rights, coupled with reflections on how rights can strain the relationships between majoritarian and non-majoritarian institutions in democracies (e.g. between parliaments and courts).
