Human values are the virtues that guide us to take into account the human element when we interact with other human beings.
Human values are, for example, respect, acceptance, consideration, appreciation, listening, openness, affection, empathy and love towards other human beings.
It is with those human values that one becomes truly able to put into practice his/her ethical values, such as justice, integrity, refusal of violence and ban to kill – even in a crisis situation.
Human values convey a positive and affective surge, which reinforces the rationale of moral values. They are thevalues that permit us to live together in harmony, and personnally contribute to peace.
Human values are a tool to manage human relations and a tool for peace when the tension is high.
