The ICCPR recognizes the inherent dignity of each individual and undertakes to promote conditions within states to allow the enjoyment of civil and political rights. The unifying themes and values of the ICCPR are found in Articles 2 and 3 and are based on the notion of non-discrimination. Article 2 ensures that rights recognized in the ICCPR will be respected and be available to everyone within the territory of those states who have ratified the Covenant State Party. Article 3 ensures the equal right of both men and women to the enjoyment of all civil and political rights set out in the ICCPR. Article 6 — Right to life. Article 7 — Freedom from torture. Article 8 — Right to not be enslaved.
