Your 30 Human Rights

THE UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS

In 1948, shortly after World War II, a set of basic principles was established 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, known as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), 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.
