International Human Rights Day

International Human Rights Day falls each year on 10th December marking the day, in 1948, that the United Nations General Assembly enshrined the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights outlines the inalienable rights of all human beings and is the most translated document in the world, available in more than 500 languages.

The declaration was drafted by UN representatives from all regions of the world, it articulates universal values and a shared standard of achievement for all peoples and nations.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights empowers us all, it establishes the equality of dignity and worth of every person. Its principles are as relevant today as when they were first developed.

The declaration reminds us of the importance of standing up for our own rights and those of others.

To acknowledge International Human Rights Day the University will present a poster display at each campus, commencing Monday 7 December 2020.
