What if my human right clashes with your human right?

What if my human right clashes with your human right?

On 21 March, we will be celebrating Human Rights Day in South Africa. It is a time for us to reflect on our individual human rights, and – more importantly – to consider how we can support others to bring these ideas into reality.
