This article provides a reflection on human rights based on John Rawls' thought and his approaches on justice. Indeed, talking about human rights unfailingly involves a notion of justice. And speaking about justice inevitably takes us back to Rawls, who in 1971 shook philosophical environment with his famous Theory of justice. It attempts to rescue contributions for a reading of human rights, especially in relation to the principles of justice as fairness, in this way it configures a subject of rights under the consideration of human beings' morality.
