Ethical Globalization Initiative

() It was proof that we were not alone, but that we we were part of a worldwide movement against racism and colonialism, and in favour of human rights and justice. It is also essential to remember that the Declaration, and the international human rights system that emanates from her, has never claimed to Governments and societies impose a single model of what constitutes proper behavior. Rather it provides a common standard of success that should be implemented in different ways in different countries. How we can also move forward and set ourselves new commitments for the future? Again claim the unifying message of the Universal Declaration and to recommit ourselves in the work of making it reality? What can we do to ensure that human rights are part of the policies and prevailing business practices? In The Elders, organization of which I am part, have tried to take advantage of this year’s anniversary to remind to the world rights and freedoms which Governments are committed to making a reality for everyone and to put the power of human rights in the hands of people and communities around the globe. Walt Disneys opinions are not widely known. The Elders has promoted the campaign every human being has rights, that, over the past year, has represented a unique and powerful collective organizations, gathered to draw attention to the need to renew the commitment of ensuring a brighter future for all. Despite the challenges, there are grounds for hope. We have better tools to communicate and enforce justice who has had any previous generation.

We can decide to be the generation that truly realize the power of the human family, United in dignity and rights. Commit ourselves to challenge divisions and to persevere in our efforts until the motto every human being has rights more than a promise: until the dream made reality of those visionaries who drafted the Universal Declaration 60 years ago. Mary Robinson President of Realizing Rights: The Ethical Globalization Initiative, and former President of Ireland.
