A new world order came into being out of the ashes of the World War II in 1945, putting respect for human rights alongside peace, security and development as the primary objectives of the United Nations. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, proclaimed in 1948, provided a framework for a series of international human right conventions. Presently almost all the national legislations influenced by these conventions. It is universally recognized that Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms are the birth right of all Human being. The main objective of the study is to investigate the historical development of Human Rights and analyze the philosophical thinking. For conducting this study data was collected from several articles, books and related documents regarding Human Rights as a qualitative paper.
