What are
Human Rights?

Human rights belong to every one of us. No one can take these rights away from us. They are ours simply because we are human beings.

Diversity
and
Equality

case-studies-4

We are all different. We may differ in our nationality, race, ethnicity, place of origin, sex and gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, ability, and economic and social status. Yet, despite these differences, there are things we have in common: needs and wants shared by all people.

Human rights have been codified in international agreements, regional frameworks and national laws.
