Abstract

In Christian ethics, the concept of imago Dei provides a moral foundation for dignity and human rights. Nevertheless, there are still gaps to fill in explaining the connections between Christianity and human rights. Based on the consequential evaluation of international human rights, this paper shows that Christian ideas, such as imago Dei and ideas from the Reformed tradition, can help us develop a more complete normative account of international human rights, of which two prominent examples, political rights and human rights to health, are discussed in detail.
