Article #6 of the UN declaration of human rights “You have rights no matter where you go”
Human right violation is a very big issue when it comes to human survival. In pursuit of this topic we decided to discuss the article #6 “You have rights no matter where you go” of the UN declaration of human rights because it is what we are experiencing right now. Being a foreigner may entail so many problems when it comes to settling down, enjoying basic human right and also accessing crucial opportunities for survival such as security, freedom and many other rights. Hence, to discuss this topic further we are going to tackle it by looking at this topic into three dimensions. We will discuss which rights have been able to be implemented in pursuit of this declaration. Furthermore, we will discuss the limitations imposed by various countries that jeopardize this declaration and most importantly the main factors that have caused the contradiction in the implementation of this article by different nations.
