Front Cover
Serials Publications, Jan 1, 2005 - Social Science - 210 pages
Human Rights Are Those Rights Which Every Individual In Any Society Requires As A Consequence Of Being Human. The Concept Has Become Popular Especially Since The Second World War, Although Its Existence Can Be Traced Back In Ancient Greek And Roman Thoughts. This Concept Has In Fact Replaced The Term Natural Rights . The Millennium Development Goals, Human Development And Human Rights Together Share A Common Motivation That Includes Freedom, Equality, Solidarity, Tolerance, Respect For Nature And Shared Responsibility. Achieving These Goals Will Enlarge Human Rights. Each Goal Is Connected To Economic, Social And Cultural Rights Counted In The Universal Declaration Of Human Rights (1948) And Many Other Human Rights Instruments. Historically, Human Rights Have Been Classified In Terms Of Three Generations, Viz, (I) Civil And Political Rights, (Ii) Economic, Social And Cultural Rights, And (Iii) Solidarity Rights. With The Shifting Of The Focus Of Global Political Disputes From The Rich And Advanced Industrialized Nations To The Poor, Less Developed And Developing Countries, Questions Regarding The Relationship Between Poverty And Oppression Arise More Frequently That Require Monitoring Human Rights For Safeguarding The Interests Of Disadvanced Sections Of The Society Including Women.
