December 10 – Human Rights Day

December 10 marks Human Rights Day, the date on which the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. This year, the theme for Human Rights Day is ‘Recover Better – Stand Up for Human Rights’, highlighting the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on human rights around the world.

Through the Universal Declaration, the United Nations recognized that the inherent dignity and equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family are the foundation of freedom, justice, and peace in the world. It sets out universal values and a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations.

This year’s Human Rights Day is an opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to the fundamental values enshrined in the Universal Declaration. It is also a reminder that these values must be defended and protected, particularly during times of crisis.

This year, with the world facing a global health and economic crisis, the promotion and protection of human rights is more crucial than ever. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated pre-existing inequalities and discrimination, highlighting the need for a more equitable and just world.

As we reflect on the theme ‘Recover Better – Stand Up for Human Rights,’ we must remember that human rights are not a privilege to be earned, but a birthright that must be respected and protected. This day serves as a reminder that we must work together to ensure that everyone’s rights are upheld and that no one is left behind.

On this Human Rights Day, let us stand in solidarity with those whose rights are being violated. Let us take action to promote and protect human rights for all, so that we can build a more peaceful, just, and sustainable world for future generations.
