On December 10, 1948, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.For the first time in the history of humanity, a document had been produced that concerned all the people of the world, without distinction. For the first time it was written that there are rights that every human being must be able to enjoy for the sole reason of being in the world. Yet, after more than 60 years, the Declaration is still disregarded, because it is still too unknown.

The Human Rights Commission aims to raise awareness among IDI Associates on the issues expressed by the Declaration, mainly concerned with informing and suggesting specific activities for the realization of real educational projects.
