International human rights law

 The international human rights law is a set of laws aimed at protecting human rights at three levels – regional, international, and domestic. The law came into existence after the World War II. This was in 1948 immediately after the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted. The declaration was meant to bring the world nations together through binding treaties in such a manner that the legal framework would be used to monitor the actions of each member state in regards to how they handle human rights issues. Therefore, monitoring and accountability mechanisms were to be propagated through this law. The international human rights law can be enforced on the regional, international, or domestic level based on the legally binding agreements made among the member states. This implies that all states that are signatories to the international laws should adjust their domestic laws to ensure consistency.
