Human rights are moral principles or norms  that describe certain standards of human behaviour and are regularly protected in municipal and international law. The doctrine of human rights has been highly influential within international law and global and regional institutions. The idea of human rights  suggests that "if the public discourse of peacetime global society can be said to have a common moral language, it is that of human rights". The strong claims made by the doctrine of human rights continue to provoke considerable scepticism and debates about the content, nature and justifications of human rights to this day. The precise meaning of the term right is controversial and is the subject of continued philosophical debate;  while there is consensus that human rights encompasses a wide variety of rights  such as the right to a fair trial , protection against enslavement , prohibition of genocide , free speech  or a right to education , there is disagreement about which of these particular rights should be included within the general framework of human rights;  some thinkers suggest that human rights should be a minimum requirement to avoid the worst-case abuses, while others see it as a higher standard.
