Human Rights Articles


In this section of the website you can find every article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), the Convention on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR) and any other human rights document that has been written . You can find these in pure form as well as in easy or simple language. Pure form means as described by the UN. In addition, you will find examples to understand what it actually means to have these rights. In the future, there are also plans to publish short comics for each article and human rights document in order to visualize the discussed article.

Structure of each article

The structure of each article is as follows:

  1. The article of the document in its pure form
  2. Simple language that everyone can understand
  3. An example of why it’s so important – the example is taken from real life.
  4. Plus in the future: a comic for each article to visualize the explained article.

The first page of a document always explains briefly:

  1. When was the document written?
  2. How many and which countries have signed and ratified the document?
  3. Are there any optional protocols?

Optional protocols are additions to the document that adapt the document to each person’s needs.
Further information can also be found on each title page of the document.
