PARIS, WORLD. 

2018 will mark the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, one preamble and thirty articles sharing a common vision of fundamental values as freedom, justice and peace, meant to inspire politics and daily life worldwide.

Eleanor Roosevelt - The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

“Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home – so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. Yet they are the world of the individual person; the neighborhood he lives in; the school or college he attends; the factory, farm or office where he works. Such are the places where every man, woman, and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerned citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.” – Eleanor Roosevelt remarks delivered at the United Nations in New York on March 27, 1958.


The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights 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 10th December 1948 as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations. 

“We stand today at the threshold of a great event both in the life of the United Nations and the life of all mankind. This declaration may well become the international Magna Carta for all men everywhere.” – Eleanor Roosevelt, driving force behind the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, on its presentation to the UN General Assembly.

The most translated document in the world

The Universal Declaration – the most translated document in the world, available in more than 500 languages [you can read it in your language here: Browse Translations or download it in English: Universal Declaration of Human Rights] – is as relevant today as it was on the day that it was proclaimed. #StandUp4HumanRights, always and forever!


 Le Rêve d’Eleanor - Amnesty International

One year of Art to celebrate the 70th anniversary

Le Rêve d’Eleanor” is a tribute to Eleanor Roosevelt, who played a crucial role in the adoption of the Declaration on 10th December 1948. To celebrate this anniversary, Bill Shipsey (founder of Art for Amnesty, a human rights activist, lawyer and lifelong member of Amnesty International) has created a project entitled “Le Rêve d’Eleanor” (“Eleanor’s Dream”). To promote a world in which the rights of all human beings are fully respected, the project invites artists from every artistic discipline the world over to dedicate at least one of their creative adventures to it. It may be a concert, a show, an exhibition or any other artistic performance produced during the year.

Damien Rice’s solo acoustic concert to benefit Amnesty International at Paris’s prestigious Olympia Music Hall on Monday 11th December 2017 has marked the start of this fabulous celebration. Damien last performed for Amnesty at the Electric Burma concert for Aung Suu Kyi in 2012. He believes“Amnesty protects humanity from inhumanity.”
