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.
