Rights of especially vulnerable groups

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights addresses the human rights of all human beings without any distinction. In the decades since the Declaration has been passed, it has been become more and more obvious that especially vulnerable groups are in need of more express explication of their human rights.

Thus, several declarations and conventions of he United Nations have addressed this need for a clearer articulation of the human rights of special groups such as:

The human rights of women

The human rights of children

The human rights of indigenous people

The human of people with disabilities

The human rights of migrants and migrant workers

The case of human rights defenders
