dc.description.abstractThe idea of human rights has been around since long before the United Declaration of Human Rights, with many historians tracing it back to the Hammurabi Code of late-18th Century BCE. Our modern idea of human rights though,- which applies to all human beings regardless of race, class, sex/gender, et cetera - became obviously necessary with the horrors of the Holocaust. Yet even with the recognition of the necessity of human rights standards across the globe, there are still points of contention and debates within the discourse on human rights.en_US
