International human rights law is the body of law that promotes rights on regional level, a form of human law made up of agreements intended to have legal effect between those who have agreed to a customary law. Whatever our place of residence, national origin, religion or any other status, we made a commitment to upholding justice over the years, through a law in the forms of customary principles and domestic law, through which UDHR inspired 80 human rights treaties. International human rights law lays down obligations to respect and to fulfill human rights, meaning that States must refrain from curtailing the enjoyment of human rights and protect groups against abuses, while taking action to facilitate basic human rights and undertaking to put into place measures compatible with their obligations.
International human rights law promotes human rights and freedoms of groups and the great achievement was the creation of an internationally body of law to which nations can aspire, internationally accepted, including cultural and political rights. There are main streams of policy within the European Union, such as to protect the human rights for citizens and to promote them worldwide, as the EU Charter guarantees the fundamental rights are binding upon institutions and national governments alike. A series of human rights treaties adopted have conferred inherent human rights and other instruments have been adopted reflecting the human rights and providing for mechanisms and laws which protect human rights, while the customary law forms the backbone of human rights law.
These are fundamental rights for citizens based on a strong commitment to protect human rights and the law, at the heart of countries policies which include the rights of children, and displaced persons and defending political and social rights. The relationship between human rights and international law is part of a larger discussion and while pluralist scholars conceive human rights law as distinct, proponents favor self-contained applicability applied during conflict. The two Covenants developed the rights enshrined in the States that set forth rights such as equality before the law, the rights to work and education, comprising the International Bill of Rights which has become focused regarding the issue of social groups requiring protection.
The foundation of the body of law is the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted 1945 and since then, it has gradually expanded the law to encompass standards for children and minorities who now are protected from discrimination that is common in societies. The Universal Declaration is agreed as the foundation and was adopted in 1948, inspiring binding treaties as an inspiration in times of suffering or in achieving human rights. Human rights are inherent regardless of ethnicity or other status and include freedom from torture, the right to education, and everyone is entitled without discrimination. The international movement was strengthened with the adoption of UDHR in 1948 as a standard for all nations for the first time, spelling out civil, economic and cultural rights that humans should enjoy, being widely accepted as the norms that everyone should protect.
