Monday 10 December 2018 is the 70th anniversary of the adoption and proclamation of the UDHR by the United Nations, the first time the organised community of nations has made a declaration of human rights. Australia was a leader in developing the UDHR. An Australian, Dr H. V. Evatt, presided over the occasion as the President of the General Assembly — the highest position in international affairs ever attained by an Australian.

Stay tuned

The Evatt Foundation will announce special events to mark the occasion shortly. In the meantime, please keep the evenings of Sunday 9 and Monday 10 free. Details soon.
