Currently one of the most debated topics is their human rights and their security, since in most
cases they are treated well by all. Talking about human rights in a global society is simple, by
promoting them in most cases, in the name of personal goals and interests of international
actors. But how easy it is to talk about them, the harder or worse it is to preserve, people have
the right to feel safe and secure. How good is a country to protect and secure the lives of its
people, and if the shield is weak, in this case we are dealing with a failure. We consider these
truths to be acceptable, all people are equal, and all of them are endowed by their creator with
some unspeakable rights, among which are life, freedom and security. To guarantee these
rights, governments have been established, whose legal power derives from the reconciliation
of the governed (Declaration of Independence, 1776).
But to be honest, we can not speak for freedom, justice and security when the majority of the

equality among people, considerations for human being and human solidarity, which
are achieved by the democratization of one another persistent society. As Hannah
Arendt pointed out, human rights are based on the idea of equality, meaning that we
always think of someone else as another human being. This means that it is exactly
what is dierent to the other, the one that brings them together and connects people
together through language and speech, through consideration for each other, as well
as through responsibility and reciprocity to each other.
Human Rights and Globalization
The concept of rights in the context of globalization has taken a dierent impact.
In the face of this process, states have to adapt their domestic and international
legislation, because the interaction of states with each other and the impact of this
interaction appear to society with the changes it brings in each area. For this reason,
government institutions have the focus on work of adapting new legal norms to the
challenge of globalization. The human rights law has always played a central role in
