Happy Human Rights Day! Read my most recent piece published on The Advocates Post.
Each year on December 10, people all around the world celebrate Human Rights Day. The date was chosen to honor the United Nations General Assembly‘s adoption on 10 December 1948 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the first global statement of international human rights principles. The UDHR was the first international document that spelled out the “basic civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights that all human beings should enjoy.” The UDHR has been translated into more than 500 languages, making it the most translated document in the world.
For 2020, the Human Rights Day theme is“Recover Better – Stand Up for Human Rights”.As the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s theme focuses on the need to ensure that human rights are central to recovery efforts.
