Rights and Freedoms


Through its efforts, the NDC’s Rights and Freedoms Working Group will have a direct impact on how citizen rights and freedoms are reflected in Yemen’s new constitution.

The working group’s members will discuss and propose ways in which the constitution can guarantee or provide for equality among citizens, respect for diversity, and basic human rights. A special emphasis will be placed on providing for the rights of women, children, minorities, and vulnerable and marginalized groups.

As part of its efforts, the group will explore how constitutional provisions which guarantee citizen rights and freedoms are enforced in other nations. How Yemen’s current constitution - as well as the constitutions of other Arab nations - addresses such matters will also be reviewed in great detail.
