The purpose of the UDHR
View the video “The Universal Declaration of Human Rights” at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTlrSYbCbHE.
Next, research the history of the UDHR, including when, where, and why it was created; who created it; and what nations signed it. Many online resources are available to learn about it. You can start by visiting the United Nations Human Rights website.
In at least two well-organized paragraphs, write a journal entry addressing the following:
The purpose of the UDHR, who created it, and the context in which it was created (What was it written in response to?)
What do you think about it?
More specifically, do you think its goals are feasible or achievable? Why or why not?
