Human Rights Law: Subjected To Interpretations?
In the case of many countries human rights law, it is almost always subjected to interpretations. There doesn’t seem to be a solid interpretation of the laws. This is why human rights have always been such a vague issue with very weak foundations.
There are derogations that enable the parties to adjust their obligations. Some of the instances where human rights law is derogated are during conflicts of arms, civil problems, environmental disasters, natural disasters and violent unrest.
Let’s talk about human rights law. Basically, it pertains to a set of laws that permit individuals to express their right to freedom expression and economy. It also encompasses cultural and economic rights. But there are a myriad of instances when these rights are bypassed, even totally ignored.
Not all people are also aware of their different human rights. The right to equality is often trampled. In this day and age, many people still discriminate race and color, particularly amongst schools and the workforce. The discriminated parties often develop tolerance to these slights to their rights to equality. But often times, there are repercussions to the people involved.
Gender inequality is also a part of the this law. Women have been voting since 1913 but gender inequality is still very prominent in many nations even outside of Pakistan.
Also, it is subjected to interpretations in such a way that women have a right to anything major in the society. But often times, gender inequality is still experienced at home with the woman still delegated to common household tasks and subjected to public scrutiny when they make decisions or actions that are considered unbecoming of a woman. Pakistani women are subjected to ridicule as well when they adopt western people’s manner of dressing.
The abuse many people with different sexual orientation get is also very evident. Although they are treated with tolerance in the workforce and other instructions, they are not subjected to kind treatments in the society. Many are still heckled and abused because of their gender preferences.
