This chapter examines ‘third generation human rights’—the obligation of the State to provide certain composite things to the individual. It contrasts first and second generation human rights as both ‘negative’ human rights (freedom from government action) and civil liberties with third generation human rights also known as ‘solidarity’ rights, including right to a clean environment, right to peace, right to education, and right to healthcare. Terming third generation human rights like development, education, health, and food as community oriented, it traces the evolution of the said terminology to the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights, and provides a clear linkage to the subsequent international instruments that have spoken about the said rights including the Millennium Goals Declaration. The chapter also examines the uncertainties surrounding these rights including, the ownership, claimants, and scope of redress.

Keywords:   human rights, civil liberties, solidarity rights, African Charter on Human and People’s Right, international law
