Human Rights Simply Explained
Useful Videos for Educating Folk About the Basics and Power of Human Rights

"All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights." This is what it says in the very first Article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The idea of Human Rights is one of the most important fundaments of human co-existence. At the same time human rights are subject to fierce debates and Human Rights violations are common all over the world.

But what exactly are Human Rights? Who is responsible for protecting them? And do they really apply to all people? These are the question the newest animated Video clip in the WissensWerte series deals with.

Focus Human Rights: Violations, History, First Dimension

First part of the series "Focus Human Rights". It deals with Civil and Political Rights, with Human Rights violations and the history of Human Rights.

This film marks the start of the project "Focus Human Rights". The series will consist of an overview clip and of one clip about each of the three dimensions of Human Rights.

The first dimension involves the Political and Civil Rights, the second dimension deals with the Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the third dimension consists of the Collective Rights.

In addition, a number of cross-cutting issues are explained. For example: the history of Human Rights, the role of non-governmental organizations such as Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, or the problems of the Human Rights system.

Together, the overview clip and the three specific clips provide a profound knowledge about the topic Human Rights.
