  • INTRODUCTION

Human Rights are rights largely founded in the core principles of Natural Law. According to Jacques Maritain, ‘The human person possesses rights because of the very fact that it is a person, a whole, master of itself and his acts, and which consequently is not merely a means to an end but an end, an end which must be treated as such. Human rights are standards that recognize and protect the dignity of all human beings. Human rights govern how individual human beings live in society and with each other, as well as their relationship with the State and the obligations that the State have towards them.
