Human rights have a positive effect on economic growth. According to a new analysis from the Danish Institute about Human rights, investment of freedom and participants rights might have positive impacts on economic growth.

On December 10, the most translated document in the world – the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) – turns 70 years old. While the declaration has established enduring human rights principles for everyone, everywhere and has become a central guiding force for the United Nations, the full reach and scope of its impact is often overlooked – or taken for granted.

We spoke with AndrewGilmour, the UN’s Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights, to better understand the history of the UDHR, how it advances human rights globally, and some of the biggest opportunities and challenges facing human rights today.

The human rights impacts of four main verticalgroupings of NSAs are mapped: 1) the double-edged role of businesses, including trans-national corporations (TNCs) and financial services, in creating opportunities for advancing individual human rights, but also their corporate social responsibility for human rights violations; 2) the contribution of civil society, including non-governmental organisations (NGOs), and stakeholders representing the interests of women, minority groups and children, in protecting and promoting human rights; 3) the increasingly important influence of dynamic international financial institutions (IFIs); and 4) the role of human rights defenders (HRDs) in identifying human rights abuses and building trust. Human rights impacts of each of these groups of NSAs are analysed horizontally by reference to areas including, inter alia, the rights of the person, labour rights, the rights of children, gender equality, non-discrimination, indigenous peoples’ rights, and the rights of peoples to their culture, religion/belief and language.
