Recht is a fundamental concept in German society and culture. It encompasses the legal system, principles of justice, and individual rights. The word has its roots in the Old High German word 'riht', which means 'straight' or 'right'. This reflects the idea that law and justice are meant to ensure fairness and correctness in society.

In Germany, Recht is a complex and multifaceted concept that is deeply ingrained in everyday life. It includes both civil law and criminal law, as well as administrative law and constitutional law. The legal system is based on the principle of the rule of law, which means that everyone is subject to the same laws and regulations, regardless of their social status or position.

Individual rights are also an important aspect of Recht. These include basic human rights such as freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and the right to a fair trial. In addition, there are specific rights related to employment, housing, education, and healthcare. These rights are protected by law and can be enforced through the courts.
