From the Paper:

"In 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations and was an initiative chaired by Eleanor Roosevelt. This declaration was formulated with the intention of providing a definition of universal human rights and to promote observance of them and as well focuses on equality and fair treatment. This declaration also affirms the rights of the individual to property, nationality, marriage and family, religion and thought, peaceable assembly, participation in government, social security, work, rest, healthy standards of living, education, and cultural expression. Within the framework of this declaration are the rights and freedoms of all individuals to give and receive respect of one another and their own individual rights which are stated in the limitations of law that everyone is subject to."
