The Organization of American States OAS promotes and protects human rights in the Western Hemisphere through a comprehensive system of norms, institutions, and procedures. The OAS Charter, the constitution of the organization, contains few references to human rights , although there are provisions specifically devoted to representative democracy, human rights and equality, economic rights, and the right to education. These treaties are binding only on the states that ratify them. Over time, the legal status of the Declaration evolved, and today it is generally held to set forth the "fundamental rights of the individual" referred to in Article 3 1 of the OAS Charter. The Declaration proclaims a list of twenty-seven human rights and ten duties, addressing civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights. The rights set forth include the right to life, liberty, and security of person; equality before the law; residence and movement; fair trial; protection from arbitrary arrest; due process of law; privacy, property, work, health, education, social security , nationality, and asylum; the benefits of culture; and leisure time.

Chapter One of the Declaration sets forth a catalogue of civil and political rights to be enjoyed by the citizens of the signatory nations, together with additional economic, social, and cultural rights due to them. As a corollary, its second chapter contains a list of corresponding duties.

In June the Third Estate that of the common people who were neither members of the clergy nor of the nobility declared itself to be a National Assembly and to represent all the people of France. Though the king resisted, the people—particularly the people of Paris —refused to capitulate to the king. The National Assembly undertook to lay out the principles that would underpin the new post- feudal government. Other influences included documents written in other countries, including the Virginia Declaration of Rights and the manifestos of the Dutch Patriot movement of the s.

For the purpose of this report, it is pertinent to define the specific concept of citizen security, as the definition is an essential prerequisite for determining the scope of the obligations incumbent upon the members States under the relevant instruments of international human rights law. The right to security from crime or interpersonal or social violence is not expressly protected under the international system of human rights law. Nevertheless, the Commission considers that the current basis of the obligations incumbent upon States is a normative core demanding the protection of rights particularly vulnerable to criminal or violent acts that citizen security policies are intended to prevent and control. At the meetings of experts and working meetings held during the sub-regional consultations in the preparation of this report, one point that came up repeatedly was the fact that in both political and academic circles in the Americas different concepts are used when discussing the same topic —protecting and ensuring human rights against crime and violence. When considering the premises of this conceptual definition, the Commission has indicated:.
