Congratulations! You have successfully completed the third week of the UDHR course.

We hope that this week fulfilled your expectations and that you are now able to:

  • Identify the impact of people standing up for human rights
  • Engage in taking action for a more inclusive and participatory society
  • Describe how the UDHR influenced the development of human rights laws and standards

You are now well equipped to take action to ensure that people in your society are aware of the importance of actively taking part in making public decisions and that the government respects the people’s choice.
