Human Rights Day
On December 10, 1948, the UN General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, on this day the international community celebrates Human Rights Day.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is the first universal international human rights instrument that enshrines the rights and freedoms of all human beings.
Thanks to this document the era of ideology and values of human rights began, as well as the conclusion of conventions, pacts, declarations and protocols on human rights. This historically unique document for post-war Europe proclaims that “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.”
