Persons in charge: M. José Bernuz Beneítez, Andrés García Inda y María José González Ordovás

Opinion is divided with regard to this category of rights; there are those who think that these are not real human rights; those who think these are human rights but less relevant than other categories; those who consider that this is a category with the same relevance as other categories of rights; and, finally, those who understand that these represent the main category of human rights. One’s choice depends on one’s conception of human rights. This is a vital question, as these rights protect a series of benefits on the fulfilment of which achieving a dignified human life depends. For this reason, together with the analysis of its theoretical relevance, it is essential to address the practical side regarding the effective protection of these rights.  The drawing up of proposals in this sphere must go beyond the national approach, making it possible to contribute to one of the greatest current challenges for human rights: the fight against poverty.
