Human Rights Offices in Nigeria and Contact Details

Human Rights Offices in Nigeria and Contact Details

Human rights are laws that uphold and defend the inherent worth of every person. Human rights determine how people interact with one another and with the state, as well as how they relate to the state and what obligations the state has to them.

Governments are restrained from doing some things by human rights law while being required to do others. People are also accountable for respecting others’ rights when exercising their human rights. No person, group, or government has the authority to act in a way that infringes the rights of others.

The first legal declaration to outline the essential human rights that should be universally protected was the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), which was adopted by the UN General Assembly in 1948. All international human rights law is still built on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), which reached 70 in 2018. Its 30 articles serve as the foundation for all upcoming and existing human rights conventions, treaties, and other legal documents.

The International Bill of Rights is made up of the UDHR as well as the two agreements, the International Covenant for Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant for Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights.
