Summary: Drawing on their vast experience as human rights advocates, William Schulz and Sushma Raman challenge us to think hard about how rights evolve with changing circumstances, and what rights will look like ten, twenty, or fifty years from now. Against those who hold that rifhts are static and immutable, Schulz and Raman argue that rights must adapt to new realities or risk being consigned to irrelevance. To preserve and promote the good society - one that protects its members' dignity and fosters an environment in which people will want to live - we must at times rethink the meanings of familiar rights and consider the introduction or entirely new rights.
