The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed December 10 as Human Rights Day in 1950, to bring to the attention to “the peoples of the world” the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as the common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations.

Among its provisions, the Human Rights Declaration grants all people “the right to work, to free choice of employment, to just and favorable conditions of work and to protection against unemployment,” and the right to form and to join trade unions.
