Theme: Human Rights and the World Today
Publication: Edited Book
Deadline: 30.11.2016


Man being born free is supposed to enjoy human rights from birth. All
the religious texts support human rights. The notion of ‘natural
right’ was developed by the Greek philosophers. Human rights provide
the individual the basic pre-requisites to develop one’s personality
and capacities. Wars have been fought in the guise of protection of
human rights. Professor Amartya Sen, the Nobel laureate, has stated
that human right has gained a new popularity in the language of
national and international communication. It has acquired legitimacy
in the world parlance. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights has
been stated to be the International Bill of Rights. The universality
of the rights is hardly appreciated throughout the world. It is
culture-specific. However, human rights need legal recognition. Right
is a child of law. Legitimacy is equally required. The role of the
law enforcement authorities is equally important. But, human rights
can go beyond legislation.
