After the atrocities of World War II, the newly formed United Nations set out to create a document listing the rights of every human. The Declaration of Human Rights was adopted on December 10, 1948.  The General Assembly asked all member nations to “to cause it to be disseminated, displayed, read and expounded principally in schools and other educational institutions, without distinction based on the political status of countries or territories."


Unfortunately, many of the rights listed in the Declaration are currently being violated in many parts of the world.  For more information about specific violations please visit our other pages containing information about specific problems involving Human Rights issues.  Topics discussed include:



 Adequate Standard of Living

Child Labor Laws

 Child Soldiers




Freedom of Religion

Freedom of Speech/Media


Human Trafficking

Illegal Arms

Imprisonment/ Detention

Internally Displaced

Involuntary/ Enforced Disappearance

Popular Sovereignty/ Elections

Racial Discrimination

Rights of Indigenous People
