The understanding of Human Rights is fairly new with religion playing a crucial role in its development. The first instance can be sighted way back in the era of renaissance humanism in the Early Modern period. The European Wars of Religion and the Civil Wars of the 17th century gave this idea a new shape. The American Revolution, French Revolution and the World Wars led to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a declaration adopted by the UNGA on 10 December 1948 at the Palais de Chaillot, Paris. The UNDR consists of thirty articles which have been elaborated in following international treaties, regional human rights instruments, national constitutions, and other laws. The International Bill of Human Rights consists of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and its two Optional Protocols.
The Human Rights Day is being celebrated since 1950, after the Assembly passed a resolution inviting all States and interested organizations. The theme for this year is ‘Human Rights 365,’ It encompasses the idea that every day is a Human Rights Day. The day celebrates the fundamental intention that all of us, across the globe, at all times are entitled to the full array of human rights. Human Rights belong equally to each one of us and bind us together as a global community.
