A UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS

 

In 1948, shortly after World War II, a set of basic principles were established and placed before the United Nations (UN) declaring the inalienable rights of all people around the world and attempting to document the lessons learned from past decades of violence and injustice. The document, known as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), contains thirty articles, which serve as a set of principles for governments to use to remain accountable for their duty to protect the rights and freedoms of all people.

The UDHR drafted under the leadership of an American woman and First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt.
Social justice, civil rights activists, civil liberties groups and religious groups including the NAACP, W.E.B. Dubois, the American Bar Association, and the American Jewish Association called on the UN to institutionalize peace making.
The Guinness Book of World Records lists the UDHR as the most translated document in the world.
All 192-member states of the UN have signed an agreement in support of the UDHR.
The UDHR used as a framework for the UN to create the Millennium Development Goals.

Democracy:

Democracy is one of the prominent themes of Peace and Justice Alliance, it has strong belief that democracy can be flourished only when there is people’s participation in every decision making process on the one hand and on the other the leadership of public agency should be transparent and accountable to the people. Considering these issues, we are working for protection, promotion and institutionalization of democracy since its establishment in 2013. The organization and its activities are broadly concerned with civil liberty, democratic and free, fair electoral mechanism, dialogue, party building, reform in governance, conflict transformation and the peace building, constitutional reform and other areas that have direct bearing with democratic norms and practices.

 

Human Rights:

The organization’s concerns on human rights are inspired by the Universal Declaration on Human Rights (UDHR) and related international conventions, treaties and instruments. It stresses respect to the people’s right to life, right to medical care, right to education, right to equal and fair social treatment as well as the right to hold political/ideological beliefs.

 

Media freedom and freedom of Expression:

The organization works to ensure that the mass media is able to play its role as the Fourth Estate and that it enjoys the independence and freedom1 to disseminate information without any hindrance. The Forum considers freedom1 of Expression and the people’s ‘right to information’ as fundamental trait of an equitable, prosperous and democratic society. It also works to enhance media professionalism and make it socially more responsible.
