In this article, I propose a few working hypotheses on the correlation between Buddhism and Human Rights. The exchange of opinions in this particular field has been carried on by eminent scholars in the last few decades, reaching a profound and fecund level. Here, I explore two crucial terms, “rights” and “dignity”, in order to find additional elements to better delineate their significance. I try to show how essential elucidation might come from Buddhist philosophical traditions, which – I believe – can help us to enhance our comprehension of what “rights” and “dignity” are.
