Embracing Vulnerability: The Challenges and Implications for Law

Daniel Bedford (Editor), Jonathan Herring (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Providing a forum for exploration and analysis of the positive aspects of human vulnerability, this book addresses the implications and challenges for law of treating vulnerability as a condition that makes possible not only harm and suffering, but also connection, creativity, intimacy, and flourishing. Examining areas of law where there is already significant resource to vulnerability, it highlights the examples of human rights, healthcare, labour, family, and elder law offering positive accounts of vulnerability and emphasising that a more positive understanding may have the greatest implications for vulnerable groups.
