Human Rights: equal rights for all

Human Rights are fundamental rights that respect the universal values of dignity, freedom, equality and justice. They apply everywhere and to all people, without distinction.

Geneva, as the headquarters of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), and to the presence of a large number of NGOs, secretariats and monitoring bodies, has for many years been a major player in the defense and promotion of Human Rights.
