THE POLITICAL, LEGAL AND MORAL SCOPE OF THE UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS: PENDING ISSUES

ÁNGELES SOLANES CORELLA

Abstract


With the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a new era began in the recognition and guarantee of human rights in the international area. However, since the moment of its approval, this text has received negative evaluations designed to relegate it to the background. The responses to these criticisms allow us to review their political and legal scope, and put it in value as a reference model in the field of human rights, delving into the pending issues to strengthen it. This is intended, on the seventieth anniversary of the Declaration, to insist that this remains an essential bridge to clarify standards that can serve as a basis for discussion between different cultures and ideologies and, therefore, an instrument that each generation must "reappropriate"

Keywords
