human rights vs social justice

Human rights are privileges that belong or are given to all individuals or groups of people. Human rights are things that we need to cherish because they are a value for an individual to have, that not all people have the privilege of having. Human rights will also be considered different in all countries and are distributed differently throughout all the countries. Social justice is somewhat different to human rights because not all human rights would be considered just in all societies. For example, how some cultures consider suicide a right but this would not be considered as social justice because it would hinder the attainment of a just society. However, there are many aspects where social justice and human rights are similar because they both want a just system however, one is considering more of an individual situation where the other is considering a society’s system.
