Human Rights

Als Menschenrechte werden subjektive Rechte bezeichnet, die jedem Menschen gleichermaßen zustehen. Das Konzept der Menschenrechte geht davon aus, dass alle Menschen allein aufgrund ihres Menschseins mit gleichen Rechten ausgestattet und dass diese egalitär begründeten Rechte universell, unveräußerlich und unteilbar sind. Die Idee der Menschenrechte ist eng verbunden mit dem Humanismus und der im Zeitalter der Aufklärung entwickelten Idee des Naturrechtes.Das Bestehen von Menschenrechten wird heute von fast allen Staaten prinzipiell anerkannt. Die Universalität ist gleichwohl Grundlage politischer Debatten und Auseinandersetzungen.
