Human rights are fundamental rights that should be afforded to all humans. These include the right to life, liberty, freedom of speech, information, and expression, the right to equality, and more.

Human rights are legal guarantees of things that all humans intrinsically have or should have, such as the rights against being enslaved, the right to free speech, and the right to a fair trial. They're rights granted - or not - by the state and can therefore vary drastically from nation to nation. They're different from the 'civil rights,' which are freedoms established by the law of a particular state and applied by that state in its jurisdiction.

Human rights are the legal rights and freedoms that belong to all humans or all humans in a group, regardless of citizenship or location. These rights include the right to life and liberty, the right to free speech, and the right to equality.

Many such rights are encoded in international laws, which countries have agreed to follow. Others are encoded in national laws, which governments have agreed to uphold. Human rights often emerge as norms (rules of conduct) within a society.
