freedoms that every individual is entitled to,
regardless of nationality, ethnicity, religion, or
any other status.
The concept of human rights is rooted in the
inherent dignity and worth of every human
being.

Nations General Assembly in 1948. It outlines

nationality, ethnicity, religion, or any other
status. The UDHR serves as a moral and legal
framework for promoting and protecting human
dignity, equality, and justice worldwide.
