Human rights

Human rights are inherent to us all, regardless of nationality, sex, national or ethnic origin, color, religion, language, or any other status. Human rights are rights we have simply because we exist as human beings – they are not granted by any state. They range from the most fundamental – the right to life – to those that make life worth living, such as the rights to food, education, work, health, and liberty.

Every person and all peoples are entitled to active, free and meaningful participation in, contribution to, and enjoyment of civil, political, economic, social and cultural development, through which human rights and fundamental freedoms can be realized.

The are some interesting facts about human rights. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is the most translated document in the world. It is available in 370 languages. Nearly 21 million people around the world are the victims of forced labour. Nepal is one of at least five countries where your gender can now appear as “other” on official documentation.

The concept of human rights is said to have originated some 2,500 years ago in modern-day Iraq. King Cyrus the Great freed slaves, established racial equality and the right to religious choice.

During 2015 alone, the death penalty has been abolished in four countries.
