Human rights are those instrumental conditions that allow the person realization (Hernandez, 2010). Consequently subsumes those freedoms, faculties, institutions or claims related to primary or basic goods including any person, for the simple fact of the human condition, to guarantee a dignified life, without distinction of race, color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.
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. Similarly, deprivation of one right adversely affects the others.
Types Of Rights
In the study of human rights that have developed different classifications in order to determine the appropriate characteristics to each group, but not in order to establish hierarchy between them. The criteria for classifications have been of different kinds, political, historical. One of the classifications is what distinguishes three groups of human rights in generations and responds to the order of their appearance in history.
This internationally accepted classification is not the order of importance of human rights, since all human rights are interdependent and integral. According to this classification exists.
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.
