1. The Strengths

1.1. They give people standards to follow and rules to abide by.

1.2. They give people reasons to protest.

1.2.1. For example, someone protesting can say that their offense is a violation of human rights. Without the UDHR, they would just say that they are not pleased with whatever they are protesting about. Th

2. The Weaknessess

2.1. The United Nations didn't make it mandatory.

2.1.1. This makes it easy for world leaders to disobey the rights without any real consequences. Thus, it is not that effective.

2.2. Not every country agrees with the rights.

3. Important To Our Society

3.1. Article 19 is important to our society because governments may try to silence the opinions of people which result in uprisings.

3.1.1. Before the UDHR, not a lot of people got a voice in things.

3.2. Article 3 is very important to our society because many people fight for rights that lead to their ultimate happiness. If this Article was always true then people wouldn't have to be oppressed for the things they believed in.

3.2.1. The UDHR is very important to people's rights.

4. The Importance of the Document

4.1. This document guarantees basic freedoms and rights to citizens.

4.1.1. Without these rights,people are a lot more likely to go hungry, end up homeless, or live shorter lives. This obviously lessens people's chances of being successful in life.

4.2. This document also provides an accurate outline for world leaders on how they should act to be humane.

5. The Global Goals and the UDHR are similar because they both are goals and standards that the whole world wants to achieve.

6. Violated In Our Society

6.1. Article 18 is usually violated and also the cause for wars and skirmishes. For extremist groups people who dont believe their specific religion are sometimes targeted fir acts of terrorism.

7. Human Rights Violation

7.1. One example that can give us where the human rights have been violated is when in North Korea had large-scale human rights abuses have been revealed which were: 120,000 prisoners held in gulags, citizens starved and publicly executed by firing squad.

7.1.1. This example violates article 6 which highlights that you cant be imprisoned without a fair trial.

7.2. Another example is when there were chemical weapon attacks in Syria.

7.3. Egypt’s violence and sexual abuse resulted in more than 600 deaths and 91 women assaulted in four days of riots at Tahrir Square.

7.3.1. No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.

8. Countries that would object to the wording of the UDHR.

8.1. Pakistan.

"Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status." (Article 2) Pakistan does not believe in gender equality. Malala was from Pakistan and she couldn't go to school. Girls can't go to school in Pakistan.

8.2. Mauritania

8.2.1. "No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms." (Article 4) In Mauritania, 20% of the country is enslaved.
