The aspiration towards protection of the human dignity of all human beings is central to the concept of human rights. This concept in its center puts the man and common universal system of values dedicated to the sanctity of life and provides a framework for building human rights system protected by internationally accepted norms and standards. The existence of international norms, by itself, does not give an authority to the United Nations to explore how the countries implement them or not. Human rights treaties, together with the Universal Declaration, represent an authoritative exposition of the norms of the international human rights, standards of conduct towards which all countries should aim. These three documents, which collectively are called International acts on human rights, represent a summarized presentation of the minimum social and political guarantees recognized by the international community as necessary for a decent life in the modern world.
