Human Rights Day, 2020

December 10, 2020

Human Rights Day is observed on 10 December every year. The day empowers and acknowledges the advocates and defenders of human rights around the world. Let us tell you that Human Rights are non-discriminatory that is all human beings are entitled to people and cannot be excluded from them. And the dilemma is that all human beings are entitled to human rights but do not experience them equally throughout the world.

The date was chosen to honor the United Nations General Assembly's adoption and proclamation, on 10 December 1948, of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the first Global enunciation of human rights and one of the first major achievements of the new United Nations. The formal establishment of Human Rights Day occurred at the 317th Plenary Meeting of the General Assembly on 4 December 1950, when the General Assembly declared resolution, inviting all member states and any other interested organizations to celebrate the day as they saw fit.

The theme of Human Rights Day 2020 is "Recover Better - Stand Up for Human Rights".
The theme relates to the COVID-19 pandemic and focuses on the need to build back better by ensuring Human Rights are central to recovery efforts.
