Countdown to Human Rights Day 2009

This year, Human Rights Day on 10 December focused on non-discrimination. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights affirmed 60 years ago that “all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights”. Yet today, the fight against discrimination remains a daily struggle for millions around the globe.
