Los Derechos Humanos y el siglo XXI


  • Angulo Sánchez, Nicolás


Human rights are powers or facilities granted or recognized as inherent to individuals and human groups, so they can claim from other individuals or groups, and at the extreme from public authorities (local, regional, national or international), specific actions and services necessary to a life with dignity. Some of the benefits of recognising human rights are improving welfare, dignity and quality of life of all human beings, as well as greater economic and social equality. This is specially important for meeting the needs of the most vulnerable individuals and groups, while simultaneusly respecting cultural diversity. In this context, satisfaying basic human needs such as food, drinking water, housing, health or education, is paramount.
