Human Rights

" Human rights are important in the relationships that exist between individuals and the government that has power over them.. "

The government exercises power over its people. However, human rights mean that this power is limited. States have to look after the basic needs of the people and protect some of their freedoms.

Human rights are the basic rights and freedoms to which all humans are considered entitled: the right to life, liberty, freedom of thought and expression, and equal treatment before the law, among others. These rights represent entitlements of the individual or group’s vis-B-vis the government, as well as responsibilities of the individual and the government authorities.

Courageous and effective activists for the rights of others often face great risks in countries where basic human rights are still ignored. These unsung heroes from countries worldwide gather at the Human Rights Defenders Policy Forum at The Carter Center to address national and global issues.

Recognizing the powerful influence of religious leaders around the country, the Mobilizing Faith for Women and Girls Initiative focuses on the policies and practices of the world's religious institutions and traditional and customary belief systems, with the objective of achieving more equitable treatment for women and girls. Many harmful practices are perpetuated because of discriminatory interpretations of religious texts and teachings.

Governments are obliged to recognize the full spectrum of human rights for all children and consider children in legislative and policy decisions. While many States are beginning to listen seriously to children's views on many important issues, the process of change is still in its earliest stages. Children have a right to express their opinions and to have their views taken seriously and given due weight. But children also have a responsibility to respect the rights of others, especially those of their parents. Every child and young person has rights, no matter who they are or where they live. These include rights to education, protection and survival. Nearly every government in the world has promised to protect, respect and fulfill these rights, yet every day they are still violated.

Democracy promotion, which can also be referred to as Democracy assistance, Democracy support, or Democracy building, is a strand of foreign policy adopted by governments and international organizations that seek to support the spread of democracy as a political system around the world.
