Considerations on the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

In the “Report 2017/2018: the state of the world’s human rights”, Amnesty International refers to the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that will be celebrated next December 10:

“As we enter 2018, the year in which the Universal Declaration of Human Rights turns 70, it is abundantly clear that none of us can take any of our human rights for granted. We certainly cannot take for granted that we will be free to gather together in protest or to criticize our governments. Neither can we take for granted that social security will be available when we are old or incapacitated; that our babies can grow up in cities with clean, breathable air; or that as young people we will leave school to find jobs that enable us to buy a home. The battle for human rights is never decisively won in any place or at any point in time. The frontiers shift continually, so there can never be room for complacency.
