Human Rights

Human rights are one of the three core principles of the Council of Europe, along with democracy and the rule of law. They are commonly understood as inalienable and fundamental rights, to which a person is inherently entitled simply because she or he is a human being, regardless of nationality, location, language, religion, ethnic origin or sexual orientation. In Europe they are enshrined in the European Convention on Human Rights, which protects more than 800 million people, living in every European country except Belarus.
