This issue is devoted to the third group of six Articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In December 1948, the General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Described by the General Assembly as “a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations,” the Declaration has been a blueprint for many international conventions. It has had a profound influence on governments throughout the world. The constitutions of many countries, including most countries which recently have gained their independence, reflect its influence.
