Human Rights

Human rights and the rule of law are not synonymous, but they do overlap and function symbiotically. In the words of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, they "represent universally applicable standards adopted under the auspices of the United Nations and must therefore serve as the normative basis for all United Nations activities in support of justice and the rule of law."

To summarize, the stronger human rights, the stronger the rule of law. Together, they form a framework for decision- and policy-making that is anchored by legality, accountability and participation. In this, they create a fertile ground for development and social transformation.

IDLO: use law to protect threatened 'Freedom of Religion' human right

ROME, November 8, 2016 – Religious minorities are under threat as unscrupulous political leaders exploit people’s fears for short term electoral gains in some western countries, said Irene Khan, Director-General of the International Development Law Organization (IDLO), ahead of a conference on the promotion and protection of freedom of religion sponsored by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of Italy.

“In some parts of the world, innocent civilians are being persecuted, attacked and slaughtered in the name of religion,” she added.
