This chapter analyses the categorisation of ‘rights’ as civil, political, and socio-economic within a democratic framework. It considers the extent to which the right to strike may fall within such categories, as well as the implications that this categorisation has for the scope of such a right. The distinction between civil, political, and socio-economic rights remains a useful tool by which to determine the scope of the right to strike, whose ambit cannot be wider than its justificatory bases permit, and to understand its treatment under international human rights law.

Keywords: rights; right to strike; civil rights; political rights; socio-economic rights; international human rights law
