75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

On the occasion of Human Rights Day, the Delegation of the European Union, the British Embassy, the Swiss Embassy and U.S. Embassy in Azerbaijan were delighted to come together with actors from civil society, human rights activists and government partners to mark the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a milestone document, which sets out for the first time in history that human rights are universal, indivisible and inalienable. By this joint action, we reinforce our strong message that the European Union, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States are committed to the global implementation of human rights, and stand for the protection of fundamental freedoms for all.
