At the heart of Ubuntu: Journal of Conflict and Social Transformation is the promotion of humaneness, which broadly promotes our common humanity and idea of kindness towards others. Hence, the modern notion of human rights can be subsumed, though arguably, within the idea of Ubuntu. Human rights are rights to which everyone is inherently entitled to (APA, 2016). Globally, December 10th has been designated as Human Rights' Day. The day is used to remind and make loud calls on governments and all stakeholders to respect the socio-political and economic rights of others. One of the core values for maintaining humanness in the context of interpersonal relationships is the recognition that our shared values and collective humanity do not obviate individual differences. Aptly, Ubuntu demands solidarity which respects the other; thus, the violation of human rights is an abuse which triggers stress in every sense of it.
