Human rights are “the basic rights and freedoms to which all humans are entitled”.

Examples of rights and freedoms which are often thought of as human rights include civil and political rights, such as the right to life, liberty, and property, freedom of expression, pursuit of happiness and equality before the law; and social, cultural and economic rights, including the right to participate in science and culture, the right to work, and the right to education.

Human rights are protected by legal mechanisms which are attached to policies in every country, with varying levels of implementation of the law.

All humans are born with human rights and they cannot be removed, regardless of the status of implementation in their country.
