Human Rigths and International Humantarian Law


Product of two World Wars, international society became aware of importance of human rights, in time of war or peace. As a starting point of this new perspective we can find the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1945) and from the date a relevant number of international treaties has been ratified to respect and protect the rights of women's, men's, children's and teenagers, vulnerable subjects among others.  The same development was effective with Geneva Conventions, on International Humanitarian Law, ensuring the combatants and civilians rights in times of internal o international armed conflict. In practice, the various instruments of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law are not applied, issue that generated the international responsibility of States before the universal and regional systems of protection.  In this section you will find articles, news, legal instruments, jurisprudence and multimedia that develop this debate.
