The Bill of Rights of the Constitution of South Africa, a cornerstone of democracy in the country enshrines the rights of all people and affirms the democratic values of human dignity, equality and freedom. The state is assigned the responsibility of respecting, protecting, promoting and fulfilling these rights. Several Acts of Parliament that have followed the Constitution make reference in their preambles to socio-economic injustices, imbalances and inequities of the past. Some articulate the importance of social justice, fundamental human rights and the need to improve the quality of life for all and to free the potential of each person in the country.
