Course-focused and comprehensive, the ‘Textbook on’ series provides an accessible overview of the key areas on the law curriculum. This chapter examines human rights protection for four specific groups: indigenous peoples, women, children, and refugees. It first explains why group rights evolved in a system of human rights that, from the outset, was supposed to be universal and then discusses: the particular needs of these groups; the evolving international and regional human rights framework; and the extent to which the legal framework addresses the needs of the group in question.
