The fundamental freedoms enshrined in the Declaration are still not a reality for many, as human rights abuses constitute a worldwide problem and give rise to ethnic, racial and religious conflicts. The Human Rights Challenges faced by the world today are:

  • Poverty and global inequities
  • Discrimination
  • Armed conflict and violence
  • Impunity
  • Democracy deficits
  • Weak institutions

IHRO would aim towards mitigating the challenges of Implementation which are fostered by the gaps in knowledge, capacity, commitment and social security.
