Happy Human Rights Day everyone!
It has been 72 years since the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). The UDHR is a milestone document that proclaims the inalienable rights which everyone is entitled to as a human being – regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. While the Declaration is not a binding document, it has inspired more than 60 human rights instruments that today form the basis for all international human rights law.
