Is an international document that comprehensively states the basic inalienable rights and fundamental freedoms of all human persons which are considered essential and indispensable for the peaceful existence of the human race.

The UDHR are universally acceptable international statements of rights which all human beings are entitled to enjoy and which should be recognized and protected by every country of the world (especially member countries of the United Nations Organization (UNO), regardless of race, sex, colour, language or religion.

The UDHR contains about thirty articles which summarily recognize that the “inherent dignity of all members of the human race is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world”.

Human rights are rights which every person should have. The universal declaration of human rights was adopted on the 10th of December 1948 in Paris, France, by the United Nations General Assembly as a reflection of the basic fundamental beliefs shared by countries of the world especially member countries of the UNO regarding human rights.

Note that the document was drafted by a committee headed by the wife of the then United States president, Mrs Eleanor Franklyn Roosevelt.
