The most modern way of defining human rights comes from Karel Vasak in the year 1979. At the International Institute of Human Rights in Strasbourg, Vasak defined human rights into three generations: (1) civil-political, (2) socio-economic, and (3) collective. The first generation of these rights, civil and political, includes rights reserved by citizens of democratic states, such as voting, ownership, speech, and religion. The second generation considers economic, social, and cultural human rights, examples of these being education, housing, and workers’ rights. The third generation, collective rights, is perhaps the most recent to gain popular recognition and the most ambiguously understood by the scholarly community. These rights have group and community consideration, as opposed to the others which are rights made for the individual. The most common example of collective rights are environmental.
