About The Universal Declaration of Human Rights


"All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights."


The Universal Declaration is the cornerstone of international human rights law and its first article captures its very essence: that human rights should be universal, indivisible and interdependent.The EU stands up and continues to relentlessly support human rights defenders, to speak out against the shrinking civil society space, and to use political and financial action to support them.

This year we mark the 70th anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and join UN Human Rights in inviting everyone to #Standup4humanrights #EU4HumanRights
