Abstract

Common categories in the field of human rights generally refer to three groups or three generations of human rights, the first and second generations are called civil and political rights and economic, social and cultural rights, respectively. This division is mainly due to the existence of conflicting views on the nature of these two categories of rights. Economic and social rights in the international human rights literature have no long history and therefore the conceptual discussions around them are insufficient and few. This paper will make a comparative study of the views of two important international instruments on the nature of economic and social rights. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is the most important United Nations instrument in the field of human rights and the Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam, expresses an Islamic view of human rights that is also in itself critical of the universal declaration of human rights. This paper analyzes the views of the two declarations on the nature of economic and social rights, and then will discuss in detail the dimensions and characteristics of labor rights and the right to education from the perspective of the above declarations.
