We all have Human Rights

As laid out in the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights, international agreements and national law, everyone should enjoy human rights and freedom from discrimination. Equality means that everyone is equal, and no distinction is made on the basis of race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other views, national or social origin, property, birth, or other status.


This video is about equality in Iceland, looking at the history, the legislation, and the experiences of people who have received international protection in Iceland.
