The Human Rights Party is a small political party in New Zealand. It focuses on what it sees as social justice, believing that insufficient emphasis is placed on people's "economic, social and cultural rights". The party believes that liberals are in error by pursuing only civil and political freedoms, saying that without a just society, the disadvantaged cannot excercise these freedoms.

In the 2002 elections, the Human Rights Party stood one candidate, Anthony van den Heuvel. He won 66 votes. In the 2005 elections, van den Heuvel stood again, and was joined by Anthony Ravlich. The two gained a total of 66 votes amongst them.
