About the book

Building on the principles of its Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the United Nations has sought since 1945 to promote, protect and to create a culture of human rights throughout the world. This book provides an encyclopedic account of the work of the United Nations in the field of human rights. It serves to illuminate the organization's campaign for human rights and its multifaceted role - as fact-finder, monitor, adviser, forum of appeal and global conscience.
