International human rights movement emerged out of the ashes of the World War II during which Allies declared that the purpose of victory was to defend liberty, religious freedom, and preserve human rights and justice. Nowadays, all states have accepted the idea of human rights in some form. There are many international organisations, which advocates for human rights through identification of their violation, collecting incident data, its analysis and publication, promotion of public awareness while conducting institutional advocacy, and lobbying to halt these violations.
