NHRIs join the Human Rights Day Campaign “Recover Better – Stand up for human rights”

Each year, 10 December marks Human Rights Day, the day when the UN General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. This year’s theme relates to the COVID-19 pandemic and focuses on the need to recover better by ensuring human rights are central to the recovery efforts. European National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) have been at the forefront in protecting and promoting human rights during these challenging times by monitoring states’ measures, advising governments and parliaments on human rights standards and informing the public about their rights during this crisis.

Throughout the day, this feed below will feature social media posts from European NHRIs celebrating Human Rights Day and joining the call to place human rights at the heart of COVID-19 responses.
