I studied Human Rights in my Faculty of Law, studied International Law in Leiden University and studied International Criminal Law in Western Case Reserve University in US and as a result I realized the importance of the Human Rights Laws to all human beings because it keeps every citizen's dignity and protects his humanity. The UN human rights charter that all the countries of the world signed was very important to all humanity in theory, but when it comes to practice we find that a lot of countries do not respect the Human Rights Laws especially in the Middle East where I belong. Individuals, especially women, have no rights so the Human Right Law for them is just a piece of paper. This is why I tried to search for the causes of this. As a result I found out that this is because there is no severe punishment for the countries that broke it because in order for these countries to have their punishment for breaking Human Rights Law is that they have to take their punishment through the International Criminal Court, but the procedures of the court cost a lot of money in addition to the fact that it takes along time.
When we talk about this subject from another prospective of the individuals whose human rights have been breached through wars, violence against women and girls, genocide, or even torture, what can they do? Or even where can they go to live in safe places, keep their dignity as a human being? The only way is to apply to travel away from their countries by applying to be refugees and immigrants because they have no money for traveling. In this case they have to wait for a long time until one of the countries approves for their resettlement, which means that they have to bear humiliation again, because their countries' leaders and presidents did not keep their citizens dignity at their home countries.
Here comes the main question: what is the solution to this matter?
In my personal point of view we can solve this problem as follows:
1- There must be free trials to critical human rights cases in the International Criminal Court that lasts for a short time in order to punish the countries who violated human rights law according to its importance to human nature.2- All the countries of the world without any exception, especially the rich and big countries, must help these refugees by their acceptance to take these refugee cases, especially in the case where they will work to earn money to help them to live with their dignity as a human beings.
In conclusion, we must put into consideration that all the world is one nation under one god regardless of our religion, our gender or our color as after all, we are all human beings who need protection from the strongest and compassion for each others as well.
