Human Rights

The Concept of Human Rights

Human rights are rights inherent to all human beings, whatever our nationality, place of residence, sex, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, language, or any other status. We are all equally entitled to our human rights without discrimination. These rights are all interrelated, interdependent and indivisible.

Universal human rights are often expressed and guaranteed by law, in the forms of treaties, customary international law , general principles and other sources of international law. International human rights law lays down obligations of Governments to act in certain ways or to refrain from certain acts, in order to promote and protect human rights and fundamental freedoms of individuals or groups.

One of the prime reasons for which need to establish CSLRA was lack of organizations working and doing research over the subject. Apart from Advocacy, Legal Aid, CSLRA is providing research facilities to the scholars so that Human Rights as a subject can be promoted.
