The main difference in why they are formed is that there are different reasons why they are formed. When you say human rights, this is the type of right that people get simply because they are born human. When a baby is born, he will automatically have human rights.

Civil rights will be different in the sense that this will form when there are some legal things that are already involved. For example, when a person is a citizen of a certain place, the person will automatically have civil rights. These rights may be different from one place to another. These rights may have some differences depending on where people live.

Rights are rules and guidelines that are given to people in a legal or a social system. There are two key types of rights that a person can have granted to them. One is human rights. This type of right is given to a person strictly off the basis of them being a human.

Examples of different types of human rights include the right to live, the right to have a fair trial, and the right to have access to an education. Civil rights involve injustice and discrimination. It prevents a person to be discriminated against or treated unfairly, for reasons such as their race or their sexuality.

Human Rights and civil rights are the two fundamental rights that humans enjoy. While one is based on being a real human being, the other seems to be dependent on society and the government. Human Rights are rights that you enjoy for just being a human. These rights include freedom of expression, right to life, fair trial, education, and protection from torture.

The Human Rights were carefully looked into and universally accepted after the General Assembly of the United Nations declared it in the year 1948. This was a moment after the Second World War. In the case of civil rights, these are rights that you enjoy just by your virtue of citizenship. The constitution also serves as a backing for civil rights. They help against injustice and discrimination from any individual, organization, or government. Unlike Human Rights that are generally accepted, civil rights are based on your own society.

Human rights are those rights that all humans should be guaranteed by virtue of them being human. These rights are meant to strengthen human beings as equal to one another on the ground of their status as humans, so they won't suffer any undue harassment, intimidation from government, groups, and other people. With human rights in place, people have the freedom to certain things such as freedom of thought and expression, right to life and liberty, equality before the law, etc.

Human rights are those rights that all humans should be guaranteed by virtue of them being human.
On the other hand, Civil rights are those rights that are general to all citizens of a country under all circumstances, regardless of one's race, sexual orientation, creed, religion. These rights are expressly enumerated in the constitution of each country. While human rights are general for all human beings regardless of religion, race, nationality, civil rights are specific to a country, meaning they may not be totally the same for every country.
