Universal Declaration of Human Rights: Human Rights and Interpretation of the same. Introduction to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Declaration of Human Rights defines itself as “the first World Declaration on dignity and equality inherent in all humans�. Historically, the picture was not, in any case, good. If we look back to the time of his statement, the world had spent periods of horrible wars and popular revolutions in reaction against the treated with humanity and degrading over almost the total population. The Declaration of Human Rights is not the first time in history that has tried to make a list of what should be the appropriate behavior for a peaceful coexistence in the world, but this is the first - it seems - being carried out with greater rigor. In 539 a.C. Cyrus, the Great of the Achaemenid Empire of Persia, published what he called the Cyrus Cylinder. In the year 590 DC, among the Arab tribes, the drafting of the Covenant of Virtuoso. Nearly a thousand years later, in 1689, was declared to the English people, the English Bill of Rights. After the French Revolution was drafted the Declaration of Rights of Man and Citizen. It was after The Second World War, when the community community though that they would never repeat such atrocities, on that occasion the United Nations Organization, on December 10, 1948 was presented the Declaration of Human Rights. The Drafting Committee of the Declaration was composed of 18 members from different political thoughts, cultural and religious. One of these members, Hernan Santa Cruz, said that this statement was about the supreme value of human beings. Value that did not originate in the decision of a worldly power, but the very fact exist. Freedom, justice and peace are the basis of this statement, that it is necessary to give a) recognition of the dignity, b) equal rights for all and c) the assumption that they are treated with inalienable rights and that all this can be successfully developed to the human and having nuclear binding of the family, as the backbone.
