International Human Rights Day, 10 December, commemorates the day on which, in 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). In 1950, the Assembly passed resolution 423 (V), inviting all States and interested organizations to observe 10 December of each year as "Human Rights Day." This is one of the most important international human rights instruments ever produced by the United Nations and it has been the inspiration and model for all other human rights conventions, charters and codes that have been adopted since. This year's International Human Rights Day will feature a number of speakers who will underscore the significance of the UDHR and this year's theme, "Our Freedoms, Our Rights, Always."
