Human Rights are entitlements that states have agreed to grant all their citizens. They are common to all countries that have ratified them and the countries are mutually responsible to each other for respecting, protecting and fulfilling them. Sweden has the main human rights conventions in common with most countries with which Sweden has development co-operation. As a State Party Sweden has an obligation to adhere to the human rights conventions.
