    10 December is indeed a day of great significance as it formalized human right and turned it into a right in the real sense. It marks the adoption of the UDHR. Right to a dignified life stands atop of every other human rights.And the biggest challenge faced by the human rights advocate around the world is to ensure right of each and everyone in the globe to a dignified life.

    Despite the adoption of UDHR and other international human rights instruments like ICCPR, ICESCR, CEDAW, CRC..., there are still many human rights violations in the world. Human rights protection needs commitment on the part of each state and change of attitude in the society. Nevertheless, December 10 is still an important day and it is a turning point in the global human rights system.
