Ethics of Human Rights
Human rights are the basic rights and freedoms that belong to every person in the world, from birth until death. They apply regardless of where you are from, what you believe or how you choose to live your life. These basic rights are based on shared values like dignity, fairness, equality, respect and independence. In Britain our human rights are protected by the Human Rights Act Find out about our work.
That human rights should have moral implications beyond the need to enact and conform to effective human rights laws is hardly surprising, given that the very concept of human rights is, at base, a moral one. Human rights are primarily a species of moral rights in that they highlight certain priority moral values that cannot be identified with any actual set of institutionalised rights and duties. Human rights can never, for instance, simply be equated with human rights law, either in its domestic or international manifestations. Because human rights derive from important human interests and needs, it is natural to expect legal protection of human rights. Indeed this itself may contribute to their moral influence in a society.

Historically, the promotion and protection of human rights as embodied in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1 draws upon human rights principles, including those on the health and well-being of populations, to which many nations were already committed. Similarly, ethical conduct in health care can be traced in spirit to the time of Hippocrates and has its modern expression in the area of bioethics. Although there are key differences enabling each to be applied separately to public health efforts, human rights and health care ethics support and compliment each other when applied together in efforts to improve public health. Traditionally, human rights norms are meant to guide the actions of governments, whereas ethics in health care much more broadly encompass concern for the specific actions, inspirations, and relationships of individual health workers, researchers, and organizations. The ethical principles that guide our work are the product of broad-based consultation, are drafted by representatives of professional bodies and organizations, and exist in the form of guidelines and proposed codes of conduct. In the United States, bioethics, as developed in the late s and early s, emphasized the central priority of individual autonomy, reflecting the individualism of American culture, in contrast to the social solidarity characteristic of many other cultures. A key feature of ethical guidelines, as recently evidenced with stem cell research and HIV vaccines, is that they can be rapidly adjusted or drafted to meet evolving scientific and human challenges, allowing for regional or national variation as needed.
In , in the aftermath of WWII, and before the development of ethics codes in psychology, the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to protect people of all nations from harm. In , 60 years later, in an increasingly globalized world, the International Union of Psychological Science and the International Association of Applied Psychology adopted the Universal Declaration of Ethical Principles for Psychologists. This latter declaration commits psychologists world-wide to be guided by fundamental ethical principles of respect and caring in all of psychology's interactions with persons and peoples. This chapter demonstrates how fundamental human rights in the world and ethical principles in psychology were each recognized through a universal declaration, how the approach to building a better world has evolved over time, and how the two universal declarations complement and strengthen each other in meeting today's global challenges for achieving freedom, justice, and peace in the world.

Moral Dimensions of Human Rights
Since the s, the field of bioethics has grown considerably. While it is true that bioethics today includes medical ethics issues, its originality lies in the fact that it goes much further than the various professional codes of ethics concerned. It entails reflection on societal changes and even on global balances brought about by scientific and technological developments.

Лиланд Фонтейн, Чед Бринкерхофф и Мидж Милкен в безмолвном ужасе смотрели на открывшуюся их глазам картину. Тридцатью метрами ниже горел купол шифровалки. Поликарбонатная крыша еще была цела, но под ее прозрачной оболочкой бушевало пламя. Внутри клубились тучи черного дыма.
