[ad_1]

Although 2023 is the 75th anniversary of the adoption of the UDHR, no country has succeeded in guaranteeing access and freedom to all the human rights contained in the document, one of them being the right to food.

International Human Rights Day is celebrated on December 10 every year. This day was created in 1950 by the United Nations General Assembly to mark the anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).

Although neither legal nor binding, the document enshrines human rights in 30 articles, including the right to protection against discrimination, the right to equality between men and women, the right to life, freedom from torture, freedom from slavery, the right to liberty, the right to be treated humanely in detention, and freedom of movement.


Although 2023 is the 75th anniversary of the adoption of the UDHR, no country has succeeded in guaranteeing access and freedom to all the human rights contained in the document.

Here are some of the human rights that are commonly violated, unprotected or not given the importance they deserve around the world.

Although the world has more than enough food production to feed everyone on the planet, 828 million people go hungry. This is why the right to food is one of the most fundamental and yet most violated human rights in the world.

Right to protection against discrimination

Discrimination based on sex, gender, race, political affiliation, religion, nationality, social status and sexual preference is still rampant around the world, with studies highlighting that this discrimination has concrete effects on the future of an individual.

Right to freedom of peaceful assembly

Although peaceful assembly is an essential social and civil right, in reality, governments around the world frequently violate this right with impunity.

People of all genders have the right to marry a person of their choice with mutual consent, but in the real world, people from certain groups like the LGBTQ communities find themselves unable to marry legally due to local laws against same-sex marriage.

Every human being is guaranteed the right to privacy within their home and personal life, but government surveillance, corporate tracking and general use of personal data means that this right is very weakly enforced.
