What are Human Rights

On 10 December 1948, the General Assembly of the United Nations approved and proclaimed the UDHR Universal Declaration of Human Rights to prevent the horrors of the Second World War from ever happening again.

Following this important resolution, the United Nations Assembly instructed the General Secretary to provide for the widespread awareness of this Declaration and, to this end, for the publication and distribution of the text in as many languages as possible, using every available means.
