The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Explained by Canadian Lawyers
Although meant to be a framework for human rights around the world, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is filled with legal language and concepts that may be difficult to grasp. The articles need to be short and clear, but also need to cover a lot of legal ground. To help understand the UDHR and all its implications, Defining Moments Canada connected with Phedely Ariste and Pascale Robillard, two Canadian lawyers, and asked them to explain what each article means and implies. On this page, you will find the full video of Phedely and Pascale discussing the entire UDHR, and also individual videos for each article.
