Seven decades after its adoption, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights remains a beacon of hope for the world, sending out an unequivocal message that an injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere, and that no abuse of human rights can be allowed to continue without challenge.It emphasizes important social and economic rights, such as the right to work and form labor unions.Beyond enumerating rights, the Commission argued for a new clarity about who should carry out the corresponding duties, and how.Even as the world becomes more deeply integrated, millions do not have a strong sense that human rights should be upheld as the universal rights of all.That simple truth must underpin the world's agenda for championing human rights now and in the future.
