Abstract: Attention to human dignity is reflected in the economic life of the individual. This paper explores the interplay of human dignity and basic socio-economic rights of human beings. Access to basic economic and social services is crucial, not only to people´s physical basic needs but also to enable the development of their potential to shape their own lives and to be active agents in the shaping of a “dignified society†. Human dignity as a relational concept requires society to respect the equal worth of all the people regardless of gender and social or economic status.
