Fabio Mendez – Human Rights Issues

Fabio Mendez is a Senior Finance Executive and a versatile change agent with many years of experience. His work has taken him into different endeavors and associated him with major infrastructure projects. His work and education has provided him with experiences that have given him a deep insight into the world. “I take pride in bridging multicultural differences and fostering mutually-productive ties with peers, subordinates, legal personnel, government officials, and key decision-makers based on a solid foundation of trust and respect,” he says. “Working with sizeable teams, I instill a strong sense of urgency, while honoring quality safety, and client satisfaction.”

The unique international perspective of Fabio Mendez has left him deeply interested in human rights – those rights that he considers inherent to all people, regardless of nationality, place of residence, religion, ethnic origin, or any other status. Everyone, he believes, is entitled to human rights without fear of discrimination.

Human rights are the cornerstone of international human rights law, as Fabio Mendez knows. This principle was first articulated in the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, which was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948. Human rights, he believes, are inalienable and should never be taken away, except in specific situations and only then after due process.

Fabio Mendez believes that the principle of human rights applies to all people equally. As it says in Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.”
