The Universal Declaration of Human Rights remains as relevant today as it was on the day in 1948 that it was proclaimed and adopted by the United Nations General Assembly. The extraordinary vision and resolve of the drafters produced a document that, for the first time, articulated the rights and freedoms to which every human being is equally and inalienably entitled.
Now available in more than 360 languages, the Declaration is the most translated document in the world — a testament to its global nature and reach.
On February 27, 2023, Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs Catherine Colonna spoke at the 52nd session of the Human Rights Council.
On this occasion, we invite you to take a look at this excellent illustrated version of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as promoted by the French Mission to the United Nations.
This booklet is available in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish.
