1948 წელს, გამანადგურებელი მეორე მსოფლიო ომის შემდგომ, რომელსაც ევროპაში მტკივნეული დაყოფა და ბევრი ევროპული ქვეყნის ოკუპაცია მოჰყვა, საერთაშორისო საზოგადოებამ ითავა ადამიანის უფლებების განსაზღვრა, ხელშეწყობა და დაცვა. 10 დეკემბერს აღვნიშნავთ ადამიანის უფლებათა საყოველთაო დეკლარაციის მიღებას, რომელშიც აღიბეჭდა ზემოხსენებული საზიარო პრინციპები და ვეებერთელა გავლენა იქონია მსოფლიოს განვითარებაზე.

接近70年前,聯合國大會通過了「世界人權宣言」,在接下來的數十年中,這個宣言與「公民權利與政治權利國際公約」及「經濟社會及文化權利國際公約」(兩公約)成為國際人權的基石。人權不再被只視為少數人的特權,而是所有人類的基本權利。因此,我們要藉此機會回顧過去在人權領域中的成就,提醒自己這些成就達成的困難不易與確保普世人權的任重道遠。

Almost 70 years ago, the United Nation General Assembly adopted the "Universal Declaration of Human Rights". For the next few decades, this Declaration together with the "International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights" and the "International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights" (the two Covenants) jointly formed the bedrock of international human rights. Human rights of individuals were no longer seen as the special privileges for the few, but the fundamental rights for all. It is thus important that on this day we take stock of what we have achieved and remind ourselves of the difficulties of achieving such progress and the long road ahead to ensure the protection of human rights everywhere.

The Supreme Court’s final majority decision of 7 December, among other things, mirrored key findings in the EU EOM’s Preliminary Statement. More importantly, however, the Supreme Court’s ruling enables Liberian voters to now fulfill their right to elect their next President.
“This decision is an important contribution to the democratic capital built so far in Liberia. The conclusion of complaints permits the elections to proceed, while the right of citizens to elect their chosen leaders shall be respected”, stated the EU EOM Chief Observer, Maria Arena.
