[Book] Politics of Human Rights: Quest for Dignity





Human rights’ is one of the most important and most 
interesting subjects. After all, the study of human 
rights is essentially about how we treat all other people 
with whom we share this planet. In its essence, striving 
for the respect of human rights is a quest for 
human dignity. 

Human rights are about recognizing, honoring and protecting 
the human dignity of each one of the six billion people on 
this planet. When human rights are not protected, the 
victim’s human dignity is thereby ignored. But what this 
also does is to deny the humanity in all of us.

We study human rights because they are deeply interested 
in making a positive contribution to the world. Our goal 
is to build on this interest and this passion. Along with 
this, our strong sense is that we want to ‘get into’ 
human rights because it is
the right thing to do.
