In a globalized world, an interdisciplinary dialogue on ethics and human rights is possible, necessary and fruitful for jurisprudence. Ethics can serve as a foundation for human rights and also shape "existing" (recognized) human rights. The enforcement of human rights, especially in international criminal law, as well as the implementation structures bring the ideas and principles of rights to life in a globalized world.This work contains articles that were presented at an international and interdisciplinary conference on "Ethics and Human Rights in a Globalized World" in Jerusalem in the fall of 2008. Young researchers from Israel and Germany, who work in the fields of law, philosophy, political science and theology, deal with the foundation of human rights, the conflict between varying human rights and effective implementation structures.
