Un Agreements On Human Rights

Posted: December 19, 2020 in Uncategorized

It represents the universal recognition that fundamental rights and freedoms are inherent to all human beings, inalienable and applicable to all in the same way, and that each of us is born free and equal in dignity and rights. Regardless of our nationality, place of residence, gender, national or ethnic origin, skin colour, religion, language or any other status, the international community pledged on 10 December 1948 to preserve dignity and justice for all of us. (1) Everyone has a duty to the community, in which only the free and full world of his personality is possible. 2. In the exercise of their rights and freedoms, everyone is subject only to the restrictions established by law, which are established exclusively to guarantee the recognition and respect of the rights and freedoms of others and to satisfy the just demands of morality, public order and the common good in a democratic society. 3. These rights and freedoms must not be exercised in any way contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations. There are currently 10 human rights bodies, which are independent committees of experts. Nine of these bodies monitor the implementation of international human rights treaties, while the tenth body, an Iron Committee for the Prevention of Torture established under the Optional Protocol to the Convention Against Torture, monitors places of detention in States Parties to the Optional Protocol. No one may be subjected to torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. There are seven bodies created under a human rights treaty that monitor the implementation of key international human rights treaties: (1) Everyone has the right to education. Education must be free, at least at the elementary and elementary level. Primary education is compulsory.

Technical and vocational training is made accessible to all and higher education must be accessible to all on the basis of their merits. (2) Education focuses on the full development of human personality and the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. It promotes understanding, tolerance and friendship among all nations, races or religious groups and promotes United Nations peacekeeping activities. (3) Parents have the prior right to choose the type of education to share with their children. UN-mandated commissions of inquiry, fact-finding missions and investigations are increasingly being used to deal with serious violations of international humanitarian law and international human rights, whether prolonged or due to sudden events, and to promote accountability for such violations and to combat impunity. These bodies of inquiry were established by the Security Council, the General Assembly, the Human Rights Council, its predecessor, the Commission on Human Rights, the Secretary-General and the High Commissioner for Human Rights. The UN Human Rights Council is the main intergovernmental body within the UN system charged with strengthening the promotion and protection of human rights around the world, as well as combating human rights violations around the world.
