70 years after its adoption by the UN General Assembly, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is just as powerfully relevant as it was on its first day. On 10th of December we will celebrate the Declaration’s 70th anniversary. This anniversary is a chance for the world to help reaffirm the enduring human rights principles and standards it has helped establish.
Thanks to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and States’ commitments to its principles, the dignity of millions has been uplifted, untold human suffering prevented and the foundations for a most just world have been laid. While its promise is yet to be fulfilled, the very fact that it has stood the test of time is testament to the enduring universality of its perennial values of equality, justice and human dignity.
