Human & Community Rights
Human and community rights refer to the civil, political, economic, and social rights and freedoms that all Libyans are entitled to, as individuals and in community.
Safeguarding Fundamental Rights
Human and community rights include a range of rights such as freedom of expression, freedom of assembly, the right to an adequate standard of living, the right to adequate food, housing, water, and sanitation, and the right to education; as well as family, minorities, and social fabric rights.
In Libya today, there is a weak security sector, an underdeveloped criminal justice system, lack of checks and balances to monitor abuses, and ignorance on the part of the public about their rights. This situation has led to violations of human and community rights. Securing human and community rights is an essential foundation for the nation’s progress that includes not just physical security but also safeguarding social, political, economic, and civic rights.
