"Human rights," the common value of human beings, are based on human wants-on those things necessary. The meaning of human rights is contested and how to apply the contested idea of human rights is more contested not only in Vietnam but also in many countries in the world. For human rights in Vietnam, many scholars and activists had different approaches, ideas, and conceptions. By using historical, comparative method and analysis, I call for all sides to carry out constructive dialogues to narrow differences in human rights and bring common ground on which to work out solutions to old problems and contend. It is wrong to use human rights as a political tool and oppose each other. As human rights or human dignity is inviolable and to respect and to protect human dignity is duty of all human being.
