Human Rights are entitlements that everyone has by virtue of being a human being, and that,
based in the freedom, dignity and equality of the human persons, are recognized by the legal
frameworks of the states, at the national or at the international levels. These rights are
protected by the law and guaranteed by the State. Human Rights protect individuals and
groups of individuals against actions that interfere with their fundamental freedoms and
undermine their human dignity.
They are fundamental rights, to which a person is inherently entitled simply because she or
he is a human being. They protect human dignity and integrity. They involve all elementary
pre conditions for a dignified human existence.
