Gekker, R. (2005) "Waiving and Exercising Rights in the Theory of Social Situations" (Working Paper No. 0106) Department of Economics, National University of Ireland, Galway.
The present paper analyses different formulations of individual rights within a traditional social choice-theoretic framework and a game form framework. It proposes a theory of social situations as a basis for some new formulations of individual rights that better incorporates some positive aspects of liberty.
