. . . is my latest paper forthcoming in Legal Theory in China where it will appear in English and in Chinese. The draft paper can be downloaded freely here. The abstract:
"Punishment would notdeserve its name if it was a response that most want to avoid. Can we say thatwe – you and I – have a right to bepunished? Or does this claim rest on a fundamental mistake? This article arguesthat there is a fundamental connection between rights and punishment that istoo often overlooked. Punishment is not about the suspension or forfeiture ofrights, but their restoration and protection."
