Human Rights

Human Rights - Defined

In 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR)
was established by the United Nations.


“Human rights are universal and every person around the world deserves to be treated with dignity and equality. Basic rights include freedom of speech, privacy, health, life, liberty and security, as well as an adequate standard of living. While Governments have the duty to protect individuals against human rights abuses by third parties, businesses are recognizing their legal, moral and commercial need to get involved.” (UN Global Compact)
