The Universal Declaration of Human Rights
On 10 December 1948, the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. After this historic act, the Assembly requested all Member States to publish the text of the Declaration and to stipulate it to be “disseminated, presented, read and commented in schools and other educational institutions, without distinction based on the political status of countries or territories”.
UNA-Spain, which since its creation aims the defense, promotion and dissemination of the principles of the United Nations and human rights, has made these the main axis of its activities. The Association has been developing for years a programme of courses and seminars on human rights in schools, civic centers, and organizations and public institutions. It also outstands for its intense work of translation of documents, reports and resolutions on human rights, and its publication and dissemination, as well as for its studies, dossiers, and educational material and disclosure on the subject.
Pocket edition for emergencies.
Commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (2008), UNA-Spain published its articles -in Catalan and Spanish- in a original and informal pocket edition in order to reach the youngest people.
