Mobilization towards a human rights consciousness and the implementation, respect, and protection of human rights in Africa in consequence of the current globalization momentum is not impractical. Many African states might appear to be increasingly accepting of international human rights norms when one looks at the multitude of instruments to which they are signatories and the proliferation of human rights institutions and truth commissions. An inclusive approach to human rights is an approach that respects, protects, and enforces everyone’s human rights, as opposed to preferential prioritization stemming from culture, nepotism, or social stigma. Human rights are considered a special set of rights. Human rights are also claim-rights, as they are claimed primarily against others, notably the state. In addition, human rights are not inconsistent with or antithetical to the normative concept of Ubuntu in Southern African societies, understood as “a person is a person through other persons”.
