On December 10th the United Nations celebrates Human Rights Day, commemorating the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948 – the first international document declaring that human rights are inalienable, applying to everyone by virtue of their humanity regardless of their race, colour, religion, sex, language, political opinion, national origin, property, birth or status.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by the UN General Assembly on December 10th 1948, was the result of the experience of the second world war. It is considered a milestone document in the history of human rights. After the end of the war, and the creation of the United Nations, the international community vowed never again to allow atrocities like those of that conflict happen again.
Available in more than 500 languages, it is the most translated document in the world.Find out more
