In this review we present the theoretical background of human rights. Human Rights are the moral rights of highest order. The idea of human rights is one of the most pervasive features of our political reality. The concept is in vogue and perhaps all the modern nation-states have tried to formulate their own institutional rights, which may not or may relate to human rights. Environmental protection is first ascertained as a universal concern which warrants consideration within a human rights context. The author recalls the foundation on which is grounded the concept of human rights, namely the human dignity, irrespective of culture, race, religion or gender. Finally, in concluding remarks, the paper considers the actual trend of recognizing human rights norms and condemning their abuses.
