Human rights embody the minimum requirements for a dignified life, applicable to all people everywhere. These needs protected by human rights include adequate food, health, education, work and shelter, among others. People also need to be able to speak and express themselves freely, participate in public affairs, form peaceful associations and practise their religions without fear. The human rights vision incorporates images of how a society should be organized to ensure that people are able to live their lives not alone, but in the company of others—to ensure that they are able to live with their families, associate with others to achieve common goals, vote for a government of their choice, and access justice when wrongs occur.
