Abstract:

"This volume celebrates the 50 anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). In so doing, it offers a comprehensive and systematic treatment of the rights and duties contained in the UDHR, in the light of its history, the intentions of its drafters and the standard-setting activities and monitoring efforts which have grown out of its existence. Each article of the UDHR is treated in a separate chapter: each chapter is written by different authors, all scholars from or associated with the Nordic countries, all active in human rights work, either academically or in the field."--BOOK JACKET.
