Abstract
This paper attempts to show the significance of the implementation of human rights in the local community. Along with the international and national schemes for the collective guarantee of human rights, the local community should be a significant arena for the carrying out of social efforts to protect and promote human rights in practice. For improving the human rights situation at the local level, multiple approaches are suggested: the widespread promotion of a human rights culture in the community, the offering of human rights education in local schools for children and workplace for adults, the collective efforts for implementing human rights by members of the local community such as agents of the local government and activists of non governmental organizations, and the introduction of local regulations for human rights. These multiple approaches aim to establish a social system for the collective guarantee of human rights at the level of the local community.
