Human rights have acquired such special significance in today’s world that they are considered to be the foundation of human life and coexistence. The doctrines of human rights are the ones upon which human dignity is endorsed. All human beings are supposed to enjoy equal dignity and rights. Undoubtedly, all human beings want to live in a developed world along with security, spirituality, law, and morality; a world free from violence, discrimination, inequality, oppression and tyranny. A world full of justice, peace, freedom, and tolerance. Human rights should seek to provide a world as such for all humanity. Therefore, the Journal of Human Rights was founded in 2006 by the Center for Human Rights Studies, to provide a forum for high-quality, original research papers demonstrating sound research methods so as to broaden the theoretical principles of human rights, and to pursue the goals of the center. Since the Journal of Human Rights was first published, it has been regarded as one of the best sources of research in the field.

 

The Journal of the Human Rights invites submission of high quality research papers on any aspects of human rights by professors, scholars, experts and those interested in the field to help us provide a venue for studies disseminating new perspectives on the theory and practices of human rights in the world.
