Universal Declaration of Human Rights

On December 10, 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was signed by 48 member countries of the United Nations. This declaration outlines political rights, civil rights, equality rights, economic rights, social rights, and cultural rights. The document, drafted by Canadian John P. Humphrey and Eleanor Roosevelt, acts as a guide for governments to create their own laws to protect human rights, such as the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the Canadian Human Rights Act and the PEI Human Rights Act.
