Civil rights? Human rights?

Reminded by Shamira's civil rights movement entry, I created an interim entry for civil rights. My intention is to provide a top-level anchor for matters at least in the United States.

I do not know if it would be better to supplement or replace this with an article on human rights. There is an article on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which I created, in part, to give a framework for extrajudicial detention.

While I know several people have been writing on more general civil society and rights movements, I'm hoping to get some help at least on the top-level extrajudicial detention and perhaps interrogation, and, ideally, on the lower-level articles. Note that each has a provision for lower-level national- and period-specific articles. Howard C. Berkowitz 20:32, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
