The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted on December10, 1948 by the General Assembly of the United Nations (United Nations Department of Public Information 2007) eloquently describes rights to which all people are entitled. These include, among others, a right to education; a right to social security and a standard of living adequate for health and well-being; freedom from slavery; freedom from arbitrary arrest, detention, exile, torture, degrading treatment, or punishment; freedom from arbitrary interference with privacy, home, family, and correspondence; and freedom of movement within and between countries. Article 28 states that “Everyone is entitled to a social and international order in which the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration can be fully realized.”
