Human Rights

Human rights are rights inherent to all human beings, regardless of race, sex, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion or any other status. Human rights include the right to life and liberty, freedom of opinion and expression, the right to work and to education, and many more. Everyone is entitled to these rights, without discrimination. There are international human right laws that lay down the obligations of Governments to act in certain ways or refrain from certain acts, in order to promote and protect human rights and fundamental freedom of individuals or groups. The foundation document is the United Nations and the declaration of Human rights.
