Human Rights Day

December 10, 2016 all-day

The UN General Assembly proclaimed 10 December as Human Rights Day in 1950, to bring to the attention ‘of the peoples of the world’ the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as the common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations. This annual event serves as a reminder of the ongoing global commitment to protect fundamental human rights, transcending geographic and cultural boundaries. In addition, it is a day when academics, activists, and students often come together to discuss critical issues, from international diplomacy to topics as diverse as climate change. Students often give thematic reports at conferences and other important events that are dedicated to Human Rights Day, and they get information for these reports thanks to the availability of online resources and the ability to buy sociology papers.
