Universal Declaration of Human Rights (Book Format in English)
Abstract:
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 10 December 1948, at the Palais de Chaillot in Paris, France, was drafted in direct response to the calamities and barbarous acts experienced by the peoples of the world during the Second World War. It is the embodiment of universal values that transcend cultures, nations and religions, and proclaims the inalienable rights to which all human beings regardless of race, color, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status are inherently entitled to as human beings. The text consists of 30 articles. In June 1946, in the wake of the deadliest conflict the world had ever seen, the newly created United Nations Economic and Social Council established the Commission on Human Rights, which consisted of 18 members from various nationalities and political backgrounds. The Commission, a standing body of the United Nations, was constituted to conceive and draft the text. It established a special Universal Declaration of Human Rights Drafting Committee, chaired by Eleanor Roosevelt, to write the articles of Declaration. The Committee met in two sessions over the course of two years. Canadian John Peters Humphrey, Director of the Division of Human Rights of the United Nations Secretariat, was entrusted by the United Nations Secretary-General to work on the project. He was soon joined by other well-known experts on the committee which included René Cassin of France, Charles Malik of Lebanon, Peng-chun Chang of China, William Hodgson of Australia, Hernán Santa Cruz of Chile, Alexander Bogomolov of the Soviet Union and Charles Dukes (Lord Dukeston) of the United Kingdom. Mr. Humphrey provided the initial draft which became the working text of the Commission. Once the committee finished its work on May 1948, the draft was further discussed by the Commission on Human rights, the Economic and Social Council and the Third Committee of the General Assembly before being put to vote in December 1948. Many amendments and propositions were made by UN Member States during the process. Today the Universal Declaration of Human Rights stands as the most translated text in the world. A testimony to its very university. The present edition, produced by the United Nations Department of Public Information, contains all 30 articles in the six official languages of the United Nations. #UDHR #UDHRTranslation #10516 #10514 #9360 #9361 #9361 #9357 #9359 #9358 #pair Universal Declaration of Human Rights in English

Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Abstract:
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 10 December 1948, at the Palais de Chaillot in Paris, France, was drafted in direct response to the calamities and barbarous acts experienced by the peoples of the world during the Second World War. It is the embodiment of universal values that transcend cultures, nations and religions, and proclaims the inalienable rights to which all human beings regardless of race, color, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status are inherently entitled to as human beings. The text consists of 30 articles. In June 1946, in the wake of the deadliest conflict the world had ever seen, the newly created United Nations Economic and Social Council established the Commission on Human Rights, which consisted of 18 members from various nationalities and political backgrounds. The Commission, a standing body of the United Nations, was constituted to conceive and draft the text. It established a special Universal Declaration of Human Rights Drafting Committee, chaired by Eleanor Roosevelt, to write the articles of Declaration. The Committee met in two sessions over the course of two years. Canadian John Peters Humphrey, Director of the Division of Human Rights of the United Nations Secretariat, was entrusted by the United Nations Secretary-General to work on the project. He was soon joined by other well-known experts on the committee which included René Cassin of France, Charles Malik of Lebanon, Peng-chun Chang of China, William Hodgson of Australia, Hernán Santa Cruz of Chile, Alexander Bogomolov of the Soviet Union and Charles Dukes (Lord Dukeston) of the United Kingdom.
