Human Rights are defined as “rights inherent to all human beings, whatever our nationality, place of residence, sex, national or ethnic origin, color, religion, language, or any other status. We are all equally entitled to our human rights without discrimination. These rights are all interrelated, interdependent and indivisible.” (United Nations Human Rights “What are Human Rights?”)
Throughout history, people were able to obtain rights and obligations based on the organizations they belonged to – the basic unit of society or family, nation, spiritual group, community or state. The concept of human rights was left to the interpretation of local units instead of a universal body defining human rights. This meant that different definitions of human rights existed.
It was on December 10, 1948 where the Declaration of Human Rights was presented to the world by the United Nations. It is a product that aroused from cruel acts and abuse committed during the Second World War. This was established by the convention of the UN in order to promote freedom and equity among nations.
Listed below is a summary version of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. As human beings, it is important to understand and know what we are entitled to in order to live a life with dignity. It is essential to understand one’s own rights in order for human dignity to prevail.
Basic human rights call for personal freedom of a human being. According to the Declaration ‘We are all born free. We all have our own thoughts and ideas. We should all be treated in the same way’ (Amnesty International UK, 2008). These basic human rights also protect a person from becoming a slave of another person.
