Watch the short film The Story of Human Rights from, which offers a excellent overview of how a sense of human rights developed over the course of history and was eventually enshrined in the UDHR–and then goes on to examine why, decades after the UDHR’s adoption, its principles remain so important, and still so far from reality. We hope The World As It Could Be Project helps spark renewed awareness of the UDHR’s principles, and inspire more thinking and action to realize them.
