Resumo

Dworkin has done well-known contributions to jurisprudence on a domestic level, but he also wrote about international law. His theory of human rights draws a distinction between justice and legitimacy, in which the first belongs to the domain of domestic public law and the second belongs to the domain of human rights. The advantage of that distinction is that it guarantees members of the international community an amount of political autonomy which is compatible with sovereignty. However, Dworkins conception of human rights does not fit well enough the practice of international law and reveals a deep contrast between jurisprudence at the domestic and international levels. Dworkin defines the domestic political community as connected by common principles whereas the international community and its rules are the result of compromises or negotiations between interested parties, and does not explain why this is so
