It took a long time – but finally it is published: an article I wrote together with Yitzhak Berman, titled
Systems of Law and Social Quality
You can find it in Volume 6, Number 1 (2012) of Social & Public Policy Review (I will have to claim the second r now …)
Though the delay of the actual publication is of course nothing to be welcomed, there may be a reason for seeing it in a positive light. Looking around, and seeing that in different ways and instances rights are increasingly seen by ruling instances (from enterprises and universities over social welfare offices to cenbtral governments …) as matter of discretion, thus actually undermining the fundamental principles of rights, it may be of special iportance to look at relevabt questions in a more fundamental way.
