About National Human Right and Law Assosiation
National Human Rights & Law Association is a collective of Human Rights students, Degree Holders, Law Practitioners etc. to advance
Human Rights by awareness in rural areas of Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and other sub-continent of India. NHRLA collaborates with human rights group
to train the people to challenge exploitation and discrimination against any individual or group on the ground of caste, gender, religion, health,
education and social status. Encourage the people to express their appreciation of human rights friendly behavior of police. It is our duty to play in
propagating the human rights culture, and in educating the general public on human rights.
The universal nature of human rights distinguishes them from the rights that are granted by a state on the basis of citizenship; and from any specific legal rights that are granted to particular members of society, or rights arising out of a contractual agreement.
This landmark document has since been given legal force in a series of global legal human rights instruments (known as ‘treaties’, ‘conventions’ or ‘covenants’) signed and adopted by UN member states. States that sign these treaties (known as ‘States Parties’) voluntarily undertake the obligations to respect, protect and fulfil the human rights enshrined in those treaties for everyone under their jurisdiction, without discrimination. .
In addition, a number of UN Conferences have developed international programmes of action addressed at overcoming inequities so that all people might live in accordance with their rights and dignity. Whilst not having the force of international law, these political commitments should be read together with the international human rights legal instruments.
This is not to say that individuals have no responsibilities, rather that these duties are governed by a different branch of law. However, states are obliged to protect human rights from abuse by third parties and should introduce national laws to govern the behaviour of individuals and groups.
In addition, attempts are currently being made within the human rights community to find ways of extending human rights responsibility to corporations, particularly multi-national companies, and to the international financial institutions.
