UNITED NATIONS OFFICE OF THE RESIDENT COORDINATOR IN NEPAL Press Release – 11 December 2017

This year, on International Human Rights Day, we embarked on a year-long celebration of the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was a monumental document for each and every one of us, and its proclamation an epic moment for free nations and peoples. It recognized, for the first time in history, the inherent dignity, and equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family, setting the foundation for freedom, justice and peace in the world.
The rights laid out in the declaration state that we are all born free and equal in dignity and rights. The universal declaration spells out without ambiguity the economic, social, political, cultural and civil rights that underpin a life free from want and fear. The power of the universal declaration is the power of ideas to change the world. The 70th anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights is a renewed call to not only celebrate its letter, but also to make sure that we speak up and act to fulfill the spirit of the declaration.
