About Human Rights
Human rights are a set of principles, or guidelines, which highlight the basic human standards a person has.
They are regularly protected in municipal and international law and are commonly understood as inalienable, which means they are not rights which have be granted and can not be limited or adapted by anyone else.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a milestone document in the history of human rights.
Every region of the world was represented in it's drafting and the Declaration was proclaimed on the 10th December 1948 by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris.
It is seen as a common standard of achievements for all peoples and all nations.
