What is The Universal Declaration of Human Rights? by Mind Map: What is The Universal Declaration of Human Rights?

1. Importance Of The UDHR

1.1. Everyone Is Entitled To These Rights

1.1.1. “Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.” Unquestionably, it is clear that the UDHR’s intention is to give rights to all of people.

1.1.2. There are so few documents of law, freedoms, or rights that are entitled to the entire world.

1.2. There Is A Providence Of Security

1.2.1. "...the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world."

1.2.1.1. There will be a providence of 'freedom, justice, and peace in the world,' which is associated indeed with security.

2. Times When People Did Not Have These Rights

2.1. "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. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty."

2.1.1. Women still lack freedoms and inequality.

2.1.1.1. Before the woman suffrage movement they did not have the right to vote

2.1.1.1.1. In Saudi Arabia, women still face the inability to vote. Still.

2.1.1.1.2. Vatican City as well, still will not let women vote; only men.

2.1.1.2. Girls did not and still do not have a right to get education.

2.1.1.2.1. Malala fought to get the education her and other girls needed

2.2. "No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile."

2.2.1. Now people are wrongly being accused of crimes

2.2.1.1. This is mainly because the common society of people are afraid of the possibility that random people on the streets could be terrorists.

2.3. "No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms."

2.3.1. Slavery still persists.

2.3.1.1. Before the emancipation proclamation most African Americans were slaves.

3. Groups/Countries That May Object To Wording Of The Document

3.1. North Korea

3.1.1. Disobeys “freedom” since any outsiders that come to go to North Korea, usually end up in jail, an act of rebellion toward the document. Not only this but also this disobeys that you can travel wherever you want.

3.2. Cuba

3.2.1. Holds possible terrorists without having the right for a fair trial in Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp. This disobeys the right to have a fair and public trial.

3.3. India

3.3.1. Holds many slaves for several reasons, actually, India holds 14 million slaves. This disobeys that no one has the right to hold you in slavery.

3.3.1.1. Even in modern times, slavery still continues.

3.4. Of course there are more but these are just a few countries the may object to some of the document.

4. Most Necessary Articles

4.1. In our society, some of these articles are important, here are a few of the ones that are the most necessary for our society, the United States.

4.1.1. “No one has the right to hold you in slavery”, the United States is known for being the “land of the free”.

4.1.1.1. This would be important since it essentially represents what the U. S is supposed to be known for.

4.1.2. “Everyone has the right to a nationality”

4.1.2.1. The U. S is also known for being a “melting pot”, that there are people from all over the world coming to the U.S.

4.1.3. “Everyone is innocent until proven guilty.”

4.1.3.1. In the U.S. country one big thing in this country is that everyone has a right to a lawyer and the Matilda Rights proclaim that you have a right to stay silent and other things that will help you be known to be innocent and you won’t be imprisoned unless proven guilty.

5. Is All Of This Reasonable?

5.1. We believe that it is reasonable because many problems have been or are being solved.

5.1.1. Many issues have been solved

5.1.1.1. Slavery was abolished in the US (see below) and wars were halted or kept from beginning

5.1.2. People are working on solving the other issues

5.1.2.1. There are the new global goals (see above) to help and the UN is working to solve problems around the world.

6. How well do you believe the United States has upheld/does uphold the values of this document?

6.1. Poverty and property: The poverty situation is ok. Sure, the poverty has dropped 15% since 2012 which is great but there is still 45 million or 14.5% of all Americans are in poverty.

6.2. Slavery: There is no exact estimate in the U.S. but normally the people who are being used as slaves are not U.S. citizens but people trafficked from a different country and forced to work here.

6.3. Torture: The 8th Amendment forbids torture in the U.S.

6.4. Privacy: The U.S. is somewhat not following the privacy rule because many things are hacked and even the federal people can check anything of yours whenever they want.

6.5. Nationality: In the U.S. usually no one is prosecuted for their nationality. Although people may be very racist.

6.6. Education: In the U.S. everyone has a right to education. Even though some people don’t go to public schools most citizens can read and write and are schooled in some way.

6.7. Voting: In the U.S. everyone above 18 has a right to vote so the U.S. also follows the voting upholds.

6.8. Wage: Every person who works has the right to a minimum wage of $15 or $7 with tips. Which is really bad for poor people but at least they are getting some money.

6.9. Same-Sex Marriage: It is law that people of the same sex can marry if they wish.

6.10. Religion: Every person has a right to any religion.

6.11. Security: Most people in the U.S. are protected by police and other security but in some cases the police may hurt the people they were supposed to protect. So U.S. is mostly effective on security.

7. Global Goals

7.1. Some of the Human Rights are the Global Goals. The Global Goals are a set of goals TO COMPLETE the Human Rights.

8. Protecting Human Rights

8.1. Countries could better protect human rights by instilling the document upon others, and making sure that people follow these rules.

8.1.1. In the document, it talks about how everyone is open to an adequate standard of living (Some people are homeless, which is inadequate living standards)

8.1.1.1. This problem in specific could be solved by providing more homeless shelters that homeless people aren’t afraid to go to.

8.2. In general, to protect these human rights, many others could set an example for others which would ultimately make the rights eventually catch on.

8.3. Countries could try to raise awareness for these human rights, as many people are ill informed about these rights.

8.3.1. The people that may be ill informed could include kids, ones that have little access to news or internet, and homeless people.

8.3.1.1. To get these people aware of these rights, it would be best to do this through widespread talking.
