This chapter analyzes the meaning of the claim that there are crimes that are said to be against humanity. That meaning is not transparently obvious, and it examines several ways in which it has been construed. It puts forward an adjudication between them—an argument as to which of the construals proffered are the most compelling. It proposes, in doing so, that if such crimes can intelligibly be spoken of as crimes against humanity, it is in part because of the premise that there are fundamental human rights.
