Focusing public attention on emerging privacy and civil liberties issues

United Nations Marks International Human Rights Day 2010

December 10 marks the United Nation's annual International Human Rights Day, which celebrates the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Declaration sets forth universal privacy rights in Article 12 and rights to freedom of expression in Article 19. The Declaration's importance and influence is recognized in the U.S. State Department's annual Human Rights Reports. In 2009, the Public Voice published the Madrid Privacy Declaration, which affirmed these international rights to privacy and free and open expression. You can find more information and resources through the U.N. Dag Hammarskjöld Library's Human Rights Day page.
