December 10, 2018: 
70 years Universal Declaration of Human Rights  

70 years Human Rights - a declaration that should affect all individual, professional and political conduct.


The observance of Human Rights is a precondition for individual health and development as well as for societies worthy of human beings. Rights violations often result in heavy bodily damages and psychological impairments.


In 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The UN General Assembly proclaimed ‘the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations’ (Preamble of the General Declaration).  

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the following further important international covenants, like the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights deliver a framework of minimal standards that have to be fulfilled for every human being, like the rights to live, liberty and security. Human Rights are indivisible.
