Chapter Summary

By way of general indication it should be mentioned that among the civil and political rights are counted: the rights pertaining to the life, integrity, liberty and security of the human person; the rights with respect to the administration of justice; the right to privacy; the rights to freedom of religion or belief, among others. All these rights are contained in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and are further defined in the subsequent component parts of the International Bill of Human Rights and in a number of more specific international instruments. They all confirm the notion that all persons are entitled to these rights, without distinction. The promotion and protection of economic and social rights are also the subject of thematic special procedures: the right to education, the right to housing, the right to food, the right to health, and human rights and extreme poverty.

Keywords: right to education; rights; the right to health; Universal Declaration of Human Rights
