Celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

December 10th marked 60 years since the Universal Declaration of Human Rights - an underappreciated global Bill of Rights - was adopted by the member states of the UN. AC Grayling honored the occasion with a ten day series of blog posts about the importance and significance of the UDHR.

"A revolutionary statement"
"Building a base of liberty"
"Freedom without borders"
"Our debt to Magna Carta"
"We know where you live"
"The return of Jix"
"A place called home"
"Speak for yourself"
"A provocative aspiration"
"Rome was not built in a day"
