Summary/Abstract: This paper aims to present certain categories of human rights in international law and the modern law of Montenegro in a concise way. The content of this paper will be broken down into sections that are important for understanding human rights issues. The methodology we will employ in this paper is a content analysis of theoretical and experts’ views exposed through the use of domestic and foreign literature, the comparative and historical methods.In the historical period of human rights development it was considered that economic, social and cultural rights should not be separated from civil and political rights, but that all rights should be contained in one document. Thus, the Universal Declaration of Rights contained provisions on both types of rights and later the two pacts were signed: one on civil and political and the other on economic, social and cultural rights. The greatest number of contemporary constitutions guarantees social and economic rights of citizens. Of course, the scope, content and categorization of these rights vary from country to country. Economic and social rights in its general features are not individual rights at all because they belong to different collectivities. Therefore, we define them by entities and their stakeholders. In principle, these rights are enjoyed by each individual belonging to a particular social group.
