About this Guide: Universal Human Rights

Human Rights Day is observed on December 10 every year. On December 10, 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly. This milestone document outlines the core principles of human rights to be applied universally.

To celebrate Human Rights Day, this month's recommended readings present books, videos, and Web resources on the history of human rights, issues surrounding universal human rights, personal accounts of struggles toward the realization of human rights, and more.
