Drawing on detailed archival research on the parallel histories of human rights and neoliberalism, Jessica Whyte uncovers the place of human rights in neoliberal attempts to develop a moral framework for a market society.
In the wake of the Second World War, neoliberals saw demands
for new rights to social welfare and self-determination as threats to
"civilisation." Yet, rather than rejecting rights, they developed a
distinctive account of human rights as tools to depoliticise civil
society, protect private investments and shape liberal subjects.
