World Human Rights Day 2022: All you need to know

World Human Rights Day observed on December 10 each year aims to raise political awareness and encourage respect for the 30 articles/ human rights listed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). The UDHR is a document that acts like a global road map for freedom and equality – protecting the rights of every individual, everywhere.

Human Rights promote rights that are unaffected by differences in nationality, gender, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, or religion. Human rights cover a wide range of rights, such as the freedom from slavery and torture, the right to life and liberty, the freedom of speech, the freedom to nationality, and the right to a job and an education, among many more.

The UDHR will celebrate its 75th anniversary on December 10 next year. In this regard, a year-long effort to highlight the UDHR and highlight its legacy, relevance, and activism will be launched on December 10, 2022, in honour of this forthcoming milestone. The theme of the campaign will be "Dignity, Freedom, and Justice for All."

The UDHR was adopted by the newly established United Nations on 10 December 1948, in response to the crimes perpetrated during the Second World War. Its adoption recognized human rights to be the foundation for freedom, justice and peace.

According to the resolution, all nations—members and nonmembers—and organizations concerned with human advancement were encouraged to observe this day in remembrance of the UDHR's enactment and to intensify their work in this area.

The UDHR comprises 30 articles that establish a wide variety of fundamental rights and liberties that all humans from all over the globe are permitted. The UDHR acts as a benchmark for what all countries should aim to achieve to satisfy basic human needs, whether socioeconomic or political.
