International Human Rights Day

On 1 December, we celebrate International Human Rights Day. »All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.« The iconic sentence of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is as relevant today as when it was adopted 75 years ago.

In Slovenia, human rights are enshrined in the Constitution. They guarantee every individual equality before the law, the inviolability of human life, the protection of personal liberty, the prohibition of torture, freedom of movement, the right to health care, education, schooling and many others.

World Human Rights Day emphasises that human rights must be respected and upheld at all times and in all places, and reminds us all to respect and tolerate one another. Let us work towards a more just and respectful world for all. Every step counts!

Human rights are not a privilege, but a right for everyone. Let every day be an opportunity to promote respect for human rights.
