HUMAN RIGHTS AND SOCIAL ADVOCACY2
1. Introduction
As stated by Skelton (2018), “Justice and Peace is the recognition of the inherent
dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family”. Right
after the devastation and trauma of the World War II, the leaders all around the world unite
with one another than never before, under the same charter of rights. On 10thof December,
1948, the General Assembly of the United Nations proclaimed and adopted the Universal
Declaration of the Human Rights (Friedman, 2018). However, a neglected feature of the very
declaration was that it ends with the obligations and the duties upon a person to their
community. Despondently, man has become obsessed with rights in absence of any sense of
duty, responsibility or obligation. It is believed that along with rights, there comes the
responsibilities as well and therefore, a balance in between them is very necessary. This paper
is going to provide a literature review on the topic- “the need to balance ‘rights’ and
‘obligations’ in the contemporary Australia.
2. Literature Review
2.1 Human Rights
As per Sen (2017), Human Rights refer to the fundamental rights and the freedoms
that belong to each individual in this world, right from their birth to their death. In the
contemporary Australia, most of the people have a wide range of several ideas regarding
what human rights means to them. It is often noticed that the Australians generally agree that
every individual has an inherent value and dignity and also, that the human rights helps them
to respect and to recognise the key worth in one another. It is the same for every people,
irrespective of their sexes, caste, creed, nationality, language, origin, ethnic, financial stability
and religion and this is what makes the Human Rights “universal”.
