What Is Article 31?
The 30 Articles of the UDHR stand as the cornerstone of all human rights pronouncements, yet they are now 70 years old. In that time, the discussion around universal human rights has evolved and grown. For example, the UDHR does not mention LGBTQ or environmental rights. The What is Article 31? project is designed to engender dialogue around which rights are missing from the UDHR. Submissions to the project will be sent to the United Nations for review. Participants can highlight issues that are important to them and their communities and perhaps even affect the evolution of global human rights.
