Human Rights Day

The date was chosen to honor the adoption and proclamation by the United Nations General Assembly on 10 December 1948 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the first global declaration of human rights and one of the first major achievements of the new United Nations. The formal establishment of Human Rights Day occurred at the 317th Plenary Meeting of the General Assembly on 4 December 1950, when the General Assembly promulgated Resolution 423(V), inviting all Member States and any other interested organizations to observe the day. .

The day is generally marked by high-level political conferences and meetings and cultural programs and exhibitions related to human rights issues. In addition, it is traditionally on December 10 that the United Nations Prize in the Field of Human Rights and the Nobel Peace Prize are awarded. Many governmental and non-governmental organizations active in the field of human rights also organize special events to commemorate the day, as do many civic and social-cause organizations.
