Existence of God The problem of evil refers to the challenge of reconciling belief in an omniscient, omnipotent, and omnibenevolent God, with the existence of evil and suffering in the world.
In what follows this definition will be assumed.
Some think it obvious that children do have rights and believe that the only interesting question is whether children possess all and only those rights which adults possess. Others are sceptical believing that given the nature both of rights and of children it is wrong to think of children as right-holders.
One background worry against which such scepticism may be set is a currently oft-expressed concern at the proliferation of rights. Rights are, so it is alleged, now promiscuously ascribed in two ways. First, the list of right-holders has been extensively lengthened. Second, many more demands are expressed as rights claims.
The concern is properly understood as one that the prodigality of rights attributions is damaging to the cause of rights. If you give away too many rights they may cease to have the value and significance they once had, and ought still to have.
A favoured metaphor in this context is monetary: That currency is indeed precious for it is almost universally accepted that rights, insofar as they exist, are things whose possession is of very great advantage to their owners. This thought must trouble the defenders of children's rights since, after all, talk of children having rights has post-dated the introduction and general acceptance of rights talk as such.
There are, however, more particular reasons for being suspicious of the idea that children have rights. To appreciate these it is necessary to be clearer about the language of rights. With respect to rights in general we can inquire as to what it is for someone to have a right, or, put another way, we can ask what being a right-holder consists in.
There are here two competing accounts, one of which is seen as fatal to the idea of children as right-holders.
We can ask a different question, namely what must be true for there to be rights. We can also construct a taxonomy of the different kinds of rights. Finally we can ask what the moral significance of having a right is, or what weight rights have. Some for instance have viewed rights as being absolute such that the fact of a person's possession of a right is sufficient to outweigh or discount all other moral considerations Nozick Others believe the possession of rights to be a weighty consideration but not so weighty as to outbalance every other moral claim.
With regard to any acknowledged right we can identify it by means of its content what is it a right to? Some believe that rights never conflict. But, if they do, we need to know which right should have priority.
Not all of these questions are relevant when we want to focus on the particular issue of whether or not children have rights, and, if so, which ones.OPERATIONS, STRATEGY AND OPERATIONS STRATEGY INTRODUCTION An organization’s operations function is concerned with getting things way that the organization interacts with its external environment and its ability to evaluating an operations strategy (ADAPTED FROM HAYES ET AL.
