Tunisia: Lights On Tunis Charter of Rights and Freedoms

Tunis — The Arab Institute for Human Rights presented, on Wednesday, the main axes of the Tunis Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Inspired by the universal legal heritage of human rights, this document is an introduction for a more fruitful debate around human rights and freedoms in Tunisia, said President of the Institute Abdelbasset Ben H'ssan, adding that this charter also aims to disseminate the culture of human rights and strengthen training in this area.

The document, he also said, contains eight chapters that highlight human rights in their overall sense and consider the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as the best guarantee of human dignity.
