Abstract [en]

International human rights is said to concern everyone, but it has been disputable whetherhomosexuals could enjoy these rights. This thesis purpose is to bring light on the case for gayrights, including their development, and to answer the question whether same-sex couples have the human right to marriage according to two of the international human rights treaties. Homosexuality has been treated differently through history, it has been both accepted, metresistance and been seen as a disease. The homosexual activity has also been a criminal act and as a consequence, homosexuals were for a long time excluded from some of the human rights. But the view on homosexuality has changed and the interpretation of the treaties has too, and lately homosexuals have been given some of those human rights that they did not enjoy before. However, there are still some rights they cannot enjoy, one of these is the right to marriage.
