The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is a unique achievement of collaboration between nations. It was adopted and proclaimed by the General Assembly of the United Nations On December 10, 1948. In many ways, it is one of the pillar of the United Nations which was founded 3 years before, at the end of the second World War in 1945.

Under Mrs Eleanor Roosevelt’s direction (the wife of American President Franklin Roosevelt), the Human Rights Commission wrote this special document. It declares the rights that everyone in the entire world should have. Today there are 192 member states of the UN, all of whom have signed on in agreement with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

You can find the full text of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights from the UN website.
