Chapter 4 Civil Rights*
Human Rights in International Law

Richard B. Lillich

Oxford University Press

This chapter, as its title indicates, is not intended to be a comprehensive map of all international human rights norms. Rather, as befits a contribution to a volume whose principal purpose is to encourage the teaching of human rights in law and graduate schools, it is basically a description cum commentary of those international norms which purport to guarantee and protect one bundle of rights: the civil rights of individuals. Since these rights find their expression in articles 3–18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights – restated, supplemented, and occasionally modified by companion articles in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights – for the sake of convenience they will be considered in the order they appear in the Universal Declaration. Teaching suggestions, syllabus, and bibliographies are provided at the end of the chapter.

Keywords:   civil rights, human rights, Universal Declaration, international law
