About the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

The UDHR was established in 1948, shortly after World War II and placed before the United Nations (UN) declaring the inalienable rights of all people around the world and attempting to document the lessons learned from past decades of violence and injustice. The document contains thirty articles, which serve as a set of principles for governments to use to remain accountable for their duty to protect the rights and freedoms of all people.
