Editor's Introduction1

    Cecile Fabre's interview begins with a discussion of social rights and the constitution and the relationship between democracy and social rights. She places the philosophical ideas about constitutional rights in a context and contrasts them with other types of rights. She talks about whether autonomy matters to social constitutional rights, Rawls's "Theory of Justice" and egalitarian liberalism, and then surprising consequences arising from her view of distributive justice concerning prostitution, what rights we have over our own bodies, and connected topics such as organ transplants2 and surrogacy.
