The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is a landmark document in history. Written by representatives of various legal and cultural circles around the world, the Declaration was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly on 10 December 1948 as a common standard of achievement for all people and nations.
For the first time, fundamental human rights are universally protected. While almost everyone seems to know about fundamental human rights, few people realize the impact of its thirty articles. These rights lay the foundation for freedom, justice and peace in the world and have been translated into more than 500 languages.
