Social rights are human rights that ensure to all people a fair standard of living, without discrimination. These may include the right to an education, healthcare, or the right to employment. Anti-discrimination acts have often secured these rights for politically weaker groups.

The theory of three generations of human rights considers social rights to be "second-generation rights", and the theory of negative and positive rights considers them to be "positive rights".
