Interdependent And Indivisible

All human rights, whether civil and political rights such as the right to life, equality before the law and freedom of expression; economic, social and cultural rights, including the right to work, social security and education; or collective rights, including the rights to development and self-determination, are indivisible, interrelated and interdependent rights. Advancing one facilitates the advancement of the other. Likewise, the deprivation of one right adversely affects the others.

Rights And Obligations

Human rights include both rights and obligations. States assume obligations and duties under international law to respect, protect and fulfill human rights. The obligation to respect means that States must refrain from interfering with the enjoyment of human rights, or limit them. The obligation to protect requires States to prevent abuses of human rights against individuals and groups. The obligation to fulfill means that States must take positive action to facilitate the enjoyment of basic human rights. At the individual level, and we must enforce our human rights, we must also respect the human rights of others.
