Abstract

As is widely recognised, human rights have an individual dimension (political rights, fundamental freedoms) and a collective one, like the right to self-determination or the cultural rights of indigenous peoples. Nonetheless, the individual rights also have an economic and social dimension that has to do with the right to work, health or education, among others, and that explains why human rights, in their entirety, must be considered in their integrated form and are also strongly related to the human needs theory (Maslow 1982) as well as to the human development paradigm (Neef/Elizalde 1986) and the UNDP Reports on Human Development. Therefore, if every human being has a need for affection, participation, subsistence, protection, understanding, leisure, creativity, freedom, identity and so on, these needs require the implementation of basic satisfiers through public policies implemented by the State, which is the basis of the second generation of social, economic and cultural rights.
