ABSTRACT
Today, the term "human rights" covers the series of often disparate rights and freedoms asserted by many to be universally accepted and essential prerequisites for peoples' enjoyment of a life based on the centrality of human dignity. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) states: "All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood". Actions infringing upon the dignity of human beings should not be tolerated. Regional or cultural characteristics should no longer serve as excuses for the violation of human rights. We must uphold what history has already proven, that human rights is a universal value.
