Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR)

Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR)

Adopted in 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the UDHR, has been translated into more than three hundred different languages. When a person or a group talks seriously about Human Rights, the reference is usually to the Universal Declaration.

The Universal Declaration began in 1948 as a 'non-binding' declaration. But, as Sean MacBride and others have noted, it has now achieved the status of Customary International Law.

Note that to date there is no formal UN instrument - declaration or convention - directly on the right to communicate. However, scattered throughout the UDHR in Articles 12,19, 20, 21, 27 and 29 are elements of the right; in fact, MacBride found the right to be implicit in the UDHR. One of the aims of this website is to help promote a formal UN Convention on the Right to Communicate.
