The United Nations was established on October 24, 1945, under the leadership of the United States. The United Nations' goal is to ensure the permanence of peace, justice, security, economic development and social equality in a global sense. The United Nations, three years after its establishment, declared the United Nations human rights declaration on December 10, 1948, at the 183th General Assembly session in Paris, France. Human rights are important for every individual because it’s about how to live as a human in this world. On the other hand, human rights from the perspective of UN is important because the UN is one of the most powerful organizations in the world, it has a capability to promote human rights and World peace. This topic worth to research for looking at some important questions such as; why Human Rights are important in international Relations? How does international law protect Human Rights? Does UN succeed in the Human Rights protection? And how differences are UN Human Rights perspective with Islamic perspectives?


Birleşmiş Milletler, Amerika Birleşik Devletleri'nin önderliğinde 24 Ekim 1945'te kuruldu. Birleşmiş Milletlerin amacı barış, adalet, güvenlik, ekonomik kalkınma ve toplumsal eşitliğin küresel anlamda kalıcı olmasını sağlamaktır. Birleşmiş Milletler, kuruluşundan üç yıl sonra, 10 Aralık 1948'de Birleşmiş Milletler İnsan Hakları Bildirgesi'ni Fransa'nın Paris kentinde düzenlenen 183. Genel Kurul toplantısında ilan etti. İnsan hakları her birey için önemlidir, çünkü bireyin bu dünyada bir insan olarak nasıl yaşayacağı ile alakalıdır.  Öte yandan, dünyanın en güçlü organizasyonlarından biri olan Birleşmiş Milletlerin insan haklarına yaklaşımı önemlidir, çünkü Birleşmiş Milletlerin insan haklarını koruma ve Dünya barışını sağlama kapasitesi vardır. Bu çalışma, bazı önemli soruları araştırması bakımından değerlidir. Bu çalışmada cevap aranan sorular şunlardır; Uluslararası İlişkilerde İnsan Hakları neden önemlidir? Uluslararası hukuk insan haklarını nasıl korur? BM İnsan Hakları korumasında başarılı mı? İslam perspektifi ve BM İnsan Hakları perspektifi arasındaki farklar nelerdir?
