What are the differences between individual and minority rights? How did the League of Nations and United Nations attempt to address the topic of human rights? Right now, we define human rights as the rights to which all people are inherently entitled to as a result of being a human being. From the creation of the League of Nations in 1920 it’s been accepted that everyone should be protected under a set of natural or legal laws, but how has the definition of these rights changed since they were first conceived? This audio collection examines the role the League of Nations and United Nations played in the implementation of this idea and both the pros and cons of assigning rights to individuals and to groups.
