1968 - International Year for Human Rights.18.3.1968
On December 10, 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. To mark this event the U.N. General Assembly had unanimously designated the whole of 1968, as International Human Rights Year.
Much has been accomplished since 1948, but no country in the world has yet fully implemented the rights affirmed in the Universal Declaration.
