Human Rights Day (also known as International Human Rights Day ) is celebrated on December 10 as a remembrance of the day when the General Assembly of the UN adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. The aim of the Declaration of Human Rights is to establish a common standard of living for all people across the planet that everyone is entitled to, and in turn to encourage all UN member states to strive towards the said standard of living for the people in their nation. Although the rights are seen as more declarative; they are legally binding. They are commonly acknowledged to have had an impact on how human rights are perceived and to be a force for good.
