The 11 countries with the best human rights ranking in the world are an example of how basic human rights should be strictly upheld, no matter what race, religion and gender one has. The days when all the right there were could be summed up with “kill or be killed” are long behind us.
Social, financial and religious causes aren’t the only things that take away many people’s basic human rights, though. You can often see different types of abuse even in the most developed countries around the world. For example, abuse of political power or corruption can play a huge role in a country’s respect for the human rights. Other times you can see military forces or forces of the law abuse their power due to different types of bias. There is a lot to fix and we are nowhere near perfection yet. However, these countries represent a step forward in the right direction.
The central European country of Slovenia takes the eleventh place in this list. Aside from being one of the most ethical countries in the world, Slovenia’s educational system is ranked as the twelfth best globally.
10. New Zealand
The small island country of lush meadows and diverse culture has long been known as a home to some of the happiest people and now we see why.
Despite having the privilege to be righteously classified as being in “the middle of nowhere”, Iceland’s inhabitants at least receive some of the most ethical treatment in the world
Denmark is another part of Scandinavia that is estimated to uphold human rights to a noticeably large extent. Aside from that, the country also offers a very progressive, high standard of living in general.
Finland is another (informally) Scandinavian country which excels in the areas of education, healthcare, civil right, and freedom. What is more, it has one of the highest per capita incomes in the world.
Denmark and Norway’s formal Scandinavian counterpart takes the sixth place in our list of the 11 countries with the best human right ranking in the world.
Luxembourg has long been known to its very high standard of living and its wealth. Now you also know that you can expect one of the most ethical treatments, were you to become a permanent resident.
Aside from some of the best beers and chocolate, one more thing to love about Belgium is the freedom it gives its population. The country is highly culturally diverse and rich in cultural heritage.
Canada has been jokingly named the place with the most polite people in the world for a reason. There not only the state but also society respects people’s rights and proper treatment.
2. San Marino
San Marino is a dwarf country in Europe which is known for its wealthy population and its low rates of crime and unemployment. To add to that, San Marino is also a notable upholder of human rights.
It can’t be said that Norway tops the list of the 11 countries with the best human rights ranking in the world, but it surely takes one of the winning places with a high score in the CIRI rankings.
