What's the need for a Human Rights Code?

The Code is a normative set of rules on all fundamental rights and guarantees, with systems of self-applicability and implementation..

The UN encourages the adoption of a Code in each of its member countries to better fight against unspeakable poverty, unequal development, human trafficking, persecution of migrants, slave labor, deterioration of the human environment and discrimination in general.


This code was drafted for consideration by the parliaments of nations in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and the International Bill of Human Rights.

Although it generally assumes the essential contents of international treaties on the subject, its rights, guarantees, declarations and principles were developed in accordance with the circumstances of the third millennium and the jurisprudence of international courts and tribunals on civil law.

The project is particularly persevering with regard to the implementation of new social and labor rights, with proposals linked to educational progress, the fight against hunger and the perpetual preservation of peace.

The text establishes a system of social solidarity based on public schools, making them the civic and political axis of society. Schools must ensure integral food and nutrition, mental and psychophysical education, family health and social, civil, legal, psychological and integral assistance free of charge for families, from the birth of children and during all years of primary and secondary education.

We are free through perseverance in knowledge; but it is also necessary to eliminate poverty: a hungry child is below freedom.

The project is particularly persevering with regard to the implementation of new social and labor rights.


No one is so unworthy that their rights can be delayed for ritual reasons or supposed obscurity of the rules.

To a strong man humiliated by poverty, freedom gives him fear instead of desire.

Unlike other legal texts, this one provides for the implementation of the enunciated rights through a tenacious system of vigilance and regulation.

The traditional nomenclature of first, second and third generation rights has not been followed, since such a distinction responds to a historicist criterion of which rights are lacking.

We have preferred a relationship in the sequence of rights that links them by their thematic nature in order of essential concerns.

A novel implementation is the introduction of the rules of sound criticism as forms of action by the magistrates in certain cases, since the lack of human rights, in so far as their relevance, cannot await specific formalities that are usually morose.

No one is so unworthy that his rights can be delayed for ritual reasons or alleged obscurity of the rules.Having judges, there are no gaps in the law, no legal obscurity that cannot be immediately resolved for the benefit of the people.

Mentions of war, torture, genocide, disappearance of persons or torments are reflexive and precise acts in a society too young to have suffered such despicable miseries.

Finally, we share the philosophy and doctrine of His Holiness Pope Francis, especially in his Apostolic Exhortation "Evangelii Gaudium", a document that constitutes a true program in defense of those whom the Pope calls "discarded", "disposable", migrants, displaced persons, orphaned children and mocked in general.
