De mänskliga rättigheternas Galjonsfigur? Den Allmänna Förklaringen om de Mänskliga Rättigheterna

Jonzon, Kerstin (2009)
Human Rights Studies
Abstract
The 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights is probably the world's most known and

internationally most respected document. The purpose of this study is to examine if the UDHR

reflects universal values and norms and to assess its moral and juridical relevance today, 60 years

after the adoption. The literature used in this literature-based critical study is mainly written by

the academic elite of the discourse on Human Rights. By comparing these sources I have reached

the conclusion that the UDHR is still today an important document because of its continuing

influence on international lawmaking and because of the encouragement and aspirations to

mankind in the never-ending struggle for the rights it represents.
