UU Principles v UN Declaration of Human Rights
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a milestone document in the history of human rights. Drafted by representatives with different legal and cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world, the Declaration was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on 10 December 1948 (General Assembly resolution 217 A) as a common standard of achievements for all peoples and all nations. It sets out, for the first time, fundamental human rights to be universally protected and it has been translated into over 500 languages.
Do you see any similarities with the UU 7(+1) Principles? What are the differences? Is one missing something the other has? Do you see any of our Principles in the Declaration? Would you add or subtract anything from either document?
