10 December is Human Rights Day, which commemorates the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). The UDHR enshrines the rights of all human beings and established for the first time the indivisible and inalienable rights of all humanity.
This year the theme is ‘Dignity, Freedom and Justice for All’. It also marks the beginning of a year-long campaign in the lead-up to the UDHR’s 75-year anniversary next year.
