Rights or human rights?[edit]

The lead currently states: "Civil and political rights are a class of rights" linking to Rights. Would instead human rights make for a better link? Are civil and political rights human rights or just rights?--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 11:46, 7 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've long been kind of unclear on why exactly wikipedia has separate articles on Rights and Human rights. The latter are obviously a subset of the former but also clearly the largest subset of the former; only animal rights would be non-human rights. So it seems like for the most part the contents should be identical, but obviously they are not, and I've never really been sure what to do about that. --Pfhorrest (talk) 09:46, 26 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Difference between civil & political rights?[edit]

I'm confused as to why these aren't separate articles? Why are they conflated in this manner? DN (talk) 00:44, 26 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Rights are sometimes divided into two different groups: the group of civil and political rights, and the group of economic, social, and cultural rights. See for example the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, which form complementary parts of the International Bill of Human Rights. Wikipedia's articles are structured to follow that convention. --Pfhorrest (talk) 09:43, 26 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Civil and political rights organizations[edit]

"These organizations serve a variety of causes one being the AFL–CIO," - I don't see how the previously mentioned organisations can be said to serve the cause of the AFL-CIO. Masonmilan (talk) 15:55, 18 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
