International Human Rights

In the world today, people everywhere are living a busy and stressful life dealing with their jobs, homes, children, friends and what not. However, when it comes to the nation and awareness about one’s own country there are very few people who are aware of their own rights and duties. Everyone must know their fundamental human rights to stand up for themselves in their society and in the world. The best person to help the common person with Universal Human Rights is a human rights lawyer or a human rights attorney.

Every man regardless of caste and creed is entitled to rights and freedom. The legal rights at national level or international level apply to all. The world would be the best place to live if all the rights, which are said to exist did exist under the international human rights law project. The universal declaration is not made up of just one human rights lawyer or one human rights attorney but of a huge team.

The universal Declaration of Human Rights was created on December 10, 1948. On this day, the General Assembly of the United States accepted the terms mentioned on the Declaration whole-heartedly; so did the member countries and they all pledged to display, read and preach in all educational institutions, schools and organizations without making any distinction among the countries.

The Preamble of the Universal Human Rights states that the dignity and the inherited rights are equal for all members of a family. Every human being holds the right to speech, belief and freedom from fear. The law protects human rights, so every man is protected by Human Rights. A man has all the right to raise his voice against any tyranny and oppression. These rights encourage friendly relations between the countries all over the world. All men and women have freedom to live their life as they want; they are free to follow any religion or speak any language. Everyone has the right to progress in life and live better. No one shall be subjected to cruelty, punishment, torture or derogatory remarks. Every citizen has the right to move within the borders and limitations of his nation.

All the member nations came together to take an oath and pledge to follow the International Human Rights code. To make the pledge come true it is important to understand them and act accordingly. The General Assembly declares these rights as a common standard of achievement for all the countries, which follow and adopt it.

The ideals advocated by the international Human rights law offer great hope and assurance to mankind. According to Human rights lawyers, the international bill of rights is made up of three main documents- the International Covenant on Economic Social and Cultural Rights (ICESR), the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). Human Rights have been accepted, followed globally for more than 60 years and they are to be followed in the coming years as well.
