Human rights recognise the inherent value of each person, regardless of background, where we live, what we look like, what we think or what we believe. Human rights are based on principles of dignity, equality and mutual respect, which are shared across cultures, religions and philosophies. They are about being treated fairly, treating others fairly and having the ability to make genuine choices in our daily lives.
