Published on

This slideshow is the first in a series and shows the first ten articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The document itself is an important part of international law and was adopted by the United Nations in December 1948.

It shows no signs of being dated as all of the articles can be applied to modern day issues - including those mentioning slavery.

I hope you find this useful.
