Human rights are the basic and birth rights of every individual. These individualistic rights are important in order to lead a dignified life in society. These rights guarantee to all round developments of an individual. The article Human Rights as Natural Rights, written by the American political theorist Jack Donnelly, is a depiction of the meaning and nature of human rights. In the article Donnelly tries to draw our attention to the theoretical premises of human rights. He basically discusses the concept of human rights from three premises- human rights as natural rights, natural rights and human rights and a social justice theory of human rights whereas the author emphasizes on the questions of what human rights are and how human rights work according to the existing theories of human rights and what the basic differences exist between these different kinds of theories.
