Human rights

Human rights are the standards, which are supposed to guarantee safe and deferential life for every individual. For human rights being not only declaratory, but also to guarantee them in reality, countries have undertaken international liability to protect them. Thereby exactly the country must guarantee the observance and the protection of human rights. Civil and political rights mainly protect individuals from unjustified intervention of the state power in the life of a person. Economic and social rights guarantee that every person is ensured with conditions in which it is able to fulfil basic economic and social needs. In situations when country must have been liable for the human rights violations, but its national system of human rights protection has not been sufficient and effective enough, it is possible to address to international institutions, which are established exactly for this purpose, for example, to The European Court of Human Rights.
