Right Etymology

right (adj.1)

"morally correct," Old English riht "just, good, fair; proper, fitting; straight, not bent, direct, erect," from Proto-Germanic *rekhtaz (source also of Old Frisian riucht "right," Old Saxon reht, Middle Dutch and Dutch recht, Old High German reht, German recht, Old Norse rettr, Gothic raihts), from PIE root *reg- "move in a straight line," also "to rule, to lead straight, to put right" (source also of Greek orektos "stretched out, upright;" Latin rectus "straight, right;" Old Persian rasta- "straight; right," aršta- "rectitude;" Old Irish recht "law;" Welsh rhaith, Breton reiz "just, righteous, wise").

Compare slang straight (adj.1) "honest, morally upright," and Latin rectus "right," literally "straight," Lithuanian teisus "right, true," literally "straight." Greek dikaios "just" (in the moral and legal sense) is from dike "custom." As an emphatic, meaning "you are right," it is recorded from 1580s; use as a question meaning "am I not right?" is from 1961. The sense in right whale is "justly entitled to the name." Right stuff "best human ingredients" is from 1848, popularized by Tom Wolfe's 1979 book about the first astronauts. Right of way is attested from 1767. Right angle is from late 14c.

right (adj.2)

"opposite of left," early 12c., riht, from Old English riht, which did not have this sense but meant "good, proper, fitting, straight" (see right (adj.1)). The notion is of the right hand as the "correct" hand. The usual Old English word for this was swiþra, literally "stronger." "The history of words for 'right' and 'left' shows that they were used primarily with reference to the hands" [Buck]. Similar sense evolution in Dutch recht, German recht "right (not left)," from Old High German reht, which meant only "straight, just." Compare Latin rectus "straight; right," also from the same PIE root.

The usual PIE root (*dek-) is represented by Latin dexter (see dexterity). Other derivations on a similar pattern to English right are French droit, from Latin directus "straight;" Lithuanian labas, literally "good;" and Slavic words (Bohemian pravy, Polish prawy, Russian pravyj) from Old Church Slavonic pravu, literally "straight," from PIE *pro-, from root *per- (1) "forward," hence "in front of, before, first, chief."

The political sense of "conservative" is first recorded 1794 (adj.), 1825 (n.), a translation of French Droit "the Right, Conservative Party" in the French National Assembly (1789; see left (adj.)).

right (adv.)

Old English rehte, rihte "in a straight or direct manner," from right (adj.1). Right on! as an exclamation of approval first recorded 1925 in African-American vernacular, popularized mid-1960s by Black Panther movement.

right (n.)

Old English riht (West Saxon, Kentish), reht (Anglian), "that which is morally right, duty, obligation," also "rule of conduct; law of a land;" also "what someone deserves; a just claim, what is due; correctness, truth; a legal entitlement, a privilege," from the root of right (adj.1). Meaning "the right" (as opposed to the left) is from mid-13c.; political use from 1825. From early 14c. as "a right action, a good deed." Meaning "a blow with the right fist" is from 1898. The phrase to rights "at once, straightway" is 1660s, from sense "in a proper manner" (Middle English).

right (v.)

Old English rihtan "to straighten, rule, set up, set right, amend; guide, govern; restore, replace," from riht (adj.); see right (adj.1). Compare Old Norse retta "to straighten," Old Saxon rihtian, Old Frisian riuchta, German richten, Gothic garaihtjan. Related: Righted; righting.

A claim or an advantage possessed by a person or persons, which is conferred or protected by law, and which implies a corresponding duty on the part of another

Related Terms: Human Right, Human Dignity, Power, Liberty

Recognition of the Rights of Animals and Nature
In the Federation of Earth

Recognizing that, in the words of Sir Muhammad Zafrulla Khan, the human being must be a source of bliss for every being; recognizing also that the human being is not the only source of bliss;

Recognizing that, in the words of Sri Krishna, all are one–and that, in the words of Albert Schweitzer, the way back to civilization lies through the reverence for life;

Aware, as stated in the Preamble to the Constitution for the Federation of Earth, of the interdependence of people, nations and all life–and aware that man’s abuse of science and technology has brought humanity also to the brink of ecological catastrophe;

Recognizing that, as described in the Global 2000 Report to the President of the United States, the destruction of the natural world has progressed to an advanced stage, to a stage where, many authorities agree, within 30 to 50 years perhaps 50% or more of the world’s animal species will have become extinct–
unless the prevalent attitude of humanity toward the status of animals changes radically;

Recognizing that, at least since the time of Darwin, it has been scientifically established that humankind shares in significant degree a common origin with the rest of the natural world and especially with its animal species;

Recognizing that, with few exceptions, under present law the inhumane treatment of animals is common practice in scientific laboratories, factory farms, and at the hands of hunters and trappers–and that present national basic laws do little to implement an ethic of the protection of nature;

Recognizing that we need to be concerned not only with the future of humanity, but also, under the Constitution for the Federation of Earth, with the fate of the planet;

Recognizing, finally, that under the Call to the Provisional World Parliament, the business of the World Parliament includes a concern with global environmental protection;

And as an expression of love;

THEREFORE, be it enacted by this provisional World Parliament in first session, 1982:

1. From the date of adoption of this resolution by the provisional World Parliament, in all considerations and decisions bearing upon the present conditions and future of humanity, the Earth Federation shall consider the interests of other species.

2.3. Employment of animals in cruel sport;
2.4. Removal of species from native habitat, in disregard of protective standards for removals;
2.5. Production of so-called animal “products” for profit.

3. The provisional World Parliament and provisional World Government shall establish a World Environmental Protection Agency, which shall include in the scope of its responsibilities the implementation of this resolution and the supervision of the establishment of the recognition of rights of animal throughout the world. (See WLA#9 summary or full text, first adopted 1987, 3rd session, revised 2004, 8th session.)

4. Until a more fully operative democratic world federation is established, the World Environmental Protection Agency is responsible to the provisional World Parliament, and to any provisional World Cabinet that is created by the provisional World Parliament. The World Environmental Protection Agency has a Board of Trustees of twenty-five members, to be appointed by the provisional World Cabinet, to be drawn from all parts of the Earth, and to include no fewer than five well-known advocates of animal rights.

InterPol ubowt Human rights

“[I]t is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression,that human rights should be protected by the rule of law.”

The International Bill of Human Rights is an informal name given to one UN General Assembly resolution and two international treaties established by the United Nations. It consists of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (adopted in 1948), the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (1966) with its two Optional Protocols and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (1966). The two covenants entered into force in 1976, after a sufficient number of countries had ratified them.

Preamble, Universal Declaration of Human Rights

In this era where the importance of human rights is increasingly emphasized, INTERPOL continually strives to promote respect for and the observance of such principles, in the context of the Organization’s mandate.


On 10 December 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as the “common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations”. By doing so, the United Nations General Assembly recognized, for the first time, the “inherent dignity” and the “equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family”.

Since then, the principles enshrined in the UniversaL DecLaraTion of Human RighTs have been widely considered to have attained the status of customary international law. The obligation in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights – to ensure a minimum level of respect for an individual’s most essential rights stemming from his existence as a human being – is not only limited to states; it extends to actors on the international scene as well.

As stated in the Vienna Declaration, which was adopted by the World Conference on Human Rights on 25 June 1993; “all human rights are universal, indivisible and interrelated. The international community must treat human rights globally in a fair and equal manner, on the same footing, and with the same emphasis.”

INTERPOL's response
To this end, INTERPOL has strived not only to refrain from any possible infringements of human rights, but also to actively promote the protection of human rights, where it is deemed necessary, in the context of the Organization’s mandate.

The importance of respect for human rights has been recognized by INTERPOL since the early days of the Organization. In INTERPOL’s General Assembly Resolution no. 3 of 1949, it was emphasized that “all acts of violence or inhuman treatment, that is to say those contrary to human dignity committed by the police in the exercise of their judicial and criminal police duties, must be denounced to justice”.

This respect for human rights is now enshrined in Article 2 of INTERPOL’s Constitution, which mandates the Organization to ensure and promote international police cooperation “in the spirit of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights”.

It is further emphasized in Article 2(a) of INTERPOL’s Rules on the Processing of Information, which provides that information is to be processed by the Organization or through its channels “with due respect for the basic rights of individuals in conformity with Article 2 of the Organization’s Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights”.

Practical examples
In practical terms, INTERPOL’s commitment to respect human rights is demonstrated through several initiatives.

Cooperation with international courts and tribunals
Firstly, the Organization cooperates closely with international courts and tribunals whose mandates envisage the prosecution and conviction of those who commit what are widely considered to be the most severe atrocities committed by man.

So far, cooperation has been established by agreements between INTERPOL and the following bodies:

International Criminal Court;
International Criminal Tribunal for former Yugoslavia;
International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda;
Special Court for Sierra Leone;
Special Tribunal for Lebanon.

For example, in the case of the Tribunal for former Yugoslavia, the basis for its co-operation with INTERPOL is to found in Article 39 of the Tribunal's Rules of Procedure and Evidence (adopted in 1994), which states that "in the conduct of an investigation, the Prosecutor may seek … the assistance … of any relevant international body, including the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL)".

As for the [[International Criminal Court]]], it is expressly provided in Article 87 (1)(b) of the Court Statute itself that "when appropriate, without prejudice to the provisions of subparagraph (a), requests may also be transmitted through the International Criminal Police Organization[…]".

INTERPOL provides assistance to these courts and tribunals through the publication of notices and support in the search for fugitives. The INTERPOL General Assembly has also authorized increased support from INTERPOL in the investigation and prosecution of genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity in Resolution AG-2004-RES-17.

Processing of personal information
Secondly, the Organization ensures that human rights are respected during the processing of personal information by the Organization or through its channels. This role is fulfilled not only by the General Secretariat itself but also by the Commission for the Control of INTERPOL’s Files.

The Commission is an independent body whose tasks include ensuring that the rules and operations relating to the processing of personal information by INTERPOL, and particularly INTERPOL’s projects to create new files or new methods of circulating personal information, do not infringe the basic rights of the people concerned, as referred to in Article 2 of the Organization’s Constitution.

The independent Commission for the Control of INTERPOL’s Files is also responsible for processing requests for access to INTERPOL’s files, including requests for correction or deletions.

General Assembly Resolution
Another way in which INTERPOL’s observance of human rights has been translated into practice is through INTERPOL’s General Assembly Resolution AGN/63/RES/16 (Rome, 1994).

This resolution emphasized the importance of work done by INTERPOL to protect basic human rights, and recommended that Member states adopt measures designed to ensure that training on human rights is provided in police colleges.

The importance of providing training on human rights to police personnel, in order to strengthen international cooperation, was recognized. A circular letter was subsequently sent to member states, requesting them to keep the General Secretariat informed of all developments concerning the implementation of this resolution.

It should be further noted that INTERPOL works in close cooperation with the United Nations Human Rights Council (formerly the United Nations Commission on Human Rights), participating regularly in their sessions and seminars.
