Human rights.>>>>>

Human rights are rights inherent to all human beings. We are all equally entitled to our human rights without discrimination. These rights are all interrelated, interdependent and indivisible.

Universal human rights are often expressed and guaranteed by law, in the forms of treaties, customary international law, general principles and other sources of international law. International human rights law lays down obligations of Governments to act in certain ways or to refrain from certain acts, in order to promote and protect human rights and fundamental freedoms of individuals or groups.

Rights protected include:

  • Recognition and equality before the law
  • The right to life;
  • Right to Education
  • The right not to be subject to torture and cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment
  • The right not to be subject to medical treatment or experimentation without consent
  • The right to privacy and reputation
  • Rights of the family and children
  • The right to participate in public life
  • Freedom of expression
  • Freedom of thought, conscience and religious belief
  • Rights of minorities to enjoy their culture
  • Freedom of movement
  • The right to a fair trial and rights in criminal proceedings
  • Freedom from forced work.

  1. Hi there,

    Do you mind explaining your choice of punctuation (>>>>>) in your title? Does it mean or symbolize something?

    Have you experienced any ethical dilemmas pertaining to human rights or a specific human right as a student physiotherapist? How did this make you feel? What is your personal opinion pertaining to this topic? I think this will add great value to the content of your post.

    Your content was concise and informative, but should be back-up by evidence/references.
