Abstract or description

The adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) has unprecedently contributed to the development of intentional human rights law, which phenomenally improved the entire spectrum of human rights. The development includes the creation of a global regime of human rights through the (re)generation of a colossal number of treaties applicable at a global level. The UDHR also carried a legacy for the regional human rights development including the European, African, and Inter-American systems to ensure stricter compliance to human rights norms and principles and to set a precedent to overcome prospective challenging circumstances. It has also led to hold several conferences including the Teheran, Helsinki, and Vienna Conference, where several conclusions and accords were endorsed which took the human right to a new height. These developments provided theoretical, normative, and legal perspectives of international human rights law including the growth of the jurisprudence of judicial and quasi-judicial bodies responsible for the creation of a sound human rights culture for the present and future generations through their interpretation and implementation of human rights law. This chapter broadly considers and critically assesses these developments of international human rights law over the past seventy-five years since the adoption of the UDHR.
