United Nations Universal Declaration Of Human Rights

Subsequent to World War II ending, on the 10th of December 1948 the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration Of Human Rights as an instrument which could help to promote freedom and equality, for all citizens, within the many nations of the World.

Whilst it is not a legally binding treaty, it has defined the terms ‘fundamental freedoms’ and ‘human rights’, which UN member states are supposed to uphold, according to the binding Charter of the United Nations.

Nowadays, many UN member states still hold little regard for some of the basic rights which are given to every person within the Universal Declaration Of Human Rights.
