Universal Declaration of Human Rights greetings cards

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris in 1948. These cards echo the style of the original published declaration.

The Declaration consists of 30 articles (summarised on these cards in the interests of brevity) such as "the right to equality" and "freedom from discrimination". Although they are not considered legally binding, the rights have been incorporated into various international treaties, human rights instruments, national constitutions, and so on. The Declaration was the first step in the process of formulating the International Bill of Human Rights, which was completed in 1966, and came into force in 1976.

Some legal experts have argued that because countries have constantly invoked the Declaration for more than 50 years, it has become binding as a part of customary international law.
