Human rights are cornerstone of @UN

75yrs ago, Govt's adopted #UDHR as a unifying force for peace, security & development

And intl human rights bodies were established to turn this vision into reality

Today, they're vital to put us back on track - if every Govt leverages them
Cooperation w/ @UN on human rights is a lifeline made of many cords bound together, like a sailor’s rope

Poor cooperation leaves Govt's adrift

Selective cooperation weakens that lifeline’s force

But full cooperation pulls everyone onto path towards justice, peace & prosperity
Engaging w/ my Office's field presences is a hallmark of States constructively cooperating to advance human rights

95 States/territories have presences. But we need them everywhere

A strong @UNHumanRights & healthy, well-resourced human rights ecosystem are a global public good

It's #HumanRightsDay & the 75th birthday of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. #UDHR75

If we were the same age as the UDHR, many of us wouldn't be enjoying the rights it defines.

How do we build on its principles to ensure later lives of meaning & dignity? Read on 🧵⬇️ Logo of the 75th anniversar...
@UNHumanRights @UN_HRC @UN4Ageing @WHO @UNDESA @UNDESASocial @UNGeneva @UN @UNFPA @IE_OlderPersons 2/ Reminder: #ageing is something to celebrate!

We are living longer than ever before. This is partly because of hard work to uphold the #UDHR.

But longer lives are not yet healthier lives for all. Our work to protect human rights needs to respond to a rapidly changing world.
3/ The #UDHR's Preamble starts by highlighting the 'equal & inalienable rights of all members of the human family'.

These human rights are 'fundamental' & must be universally recognised & observed.

⚠️ This commitment has no age limits!

REMEMBER THIS 👇 in upcoming debates, if YOUR representative says words to the effect of: "Oh no, we're not trying to destroy #HumanRights. We agree Human Rights are important - honest, guv! - we just don't like the UK #HumanRightsAct and/or the #EuropeanConvention (#ECHR)"...
Such claims are DEMONSTRABLY BULLSHIT if they come from the mouth of *anyone* who supports the position @CPhilpOfficial has espoused, which the @Telegraph has splashed on its front page...
To be clear, #Article4 of #UDHR 👇 (also #ECHR and #HRA) is explicit and unambiguous:

"NO ONE shall be held in #slavery or #servitude; slavery and the #slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms."

Not "British citizens"; not "lawful residents", or "people we like"... Article 1 All human beings are born free & equal in dignity

La Déclaration universelle des droits de l'homme

Considérant que la reconnaissance de la dignité inhérente à tous les membres de la famille humaine et de leurs droits égaux et inaliénables constitue le fondement de la liberté, de la justice et de la paix dans le monde.
Considérant que la méconnaissance et le mépris des droits de l'homme ont conduit à des actes de barbarie qui révoltent la conscience de l'humanité et que l'avènement d'un monde ...
... où les êtres humains seront libres de parler et de croire, libérés de la terreur et de la misère, a été proclamé comme la plus haute aspiration de l'homme.

Here's a fun #NINO - the UK's National Insurance Number - [Thread] to start the weekend 👇

Maybe I should do an #NHSnumber one sometime? It's a fascinating story, which (ironically) starts with these...
[With thanks to @guy_herbert, @TomSamaki, @PrivacyMatters & others for encouragement!]

Before I start a geeky 'deep dive' on the #NHSnumber, to provide some (personal/professional) context that will hopefully become apparent, I'll just drop these two images here:
So, to begin.

After the Second World War, in a time when we started to think (again) what a #civilised society would be, and when our leaders tried to agree #principles like #UDHR that might prevent the recurrence of genocide, and support #dignity and #HumanRights for all...

Team Khadim ul Khalaq Foundation (KKF) with the support of the United States Institute of Peace (@USIP) conducted its seventh training under the project “Promoting Peace Through Critical thinking”. ImageImageImage
The 5-days training was held at Govt High School Kohi Sher Haider Bara, where middle & high-grade students were engaged in lectures, group activities & video documentaries on various themes such as Empathy, Peace/Conflict Resolution, Human Rights, Leadership & Interfaith Harmony. ImageImageImage
The curriculum of our schools offers very little content on peace education. This project is an attempt to build the capacity of youth while empowering them with skills required to promote peace and prevent them from joining militant/radical organizations in this region. ImageImageImageImage

THREAD on biz, human rights and tech. 1/ On this 70th anniversary of the UDHR’s adoption by UNGA, connecting dots from UDHR to tech today. UDHR-> ICCPR-> UNGPs-> GNI Principles-> #tech company human rights commitments, infrastructure, and decisions. #UDHR:…
2/ UDHR is unique in modern int'l political system (post-1648) b/c rights declared inherent in all people based on human dignity, not derived from god, a king or the state. For provisions that we relate to the tech sector today, see Articles 12 (privacy) and 19 (free expression).
3/ In the ICCPR, as one of the UDHR's implementing treaties, see Articles 17 (privacy) and 19 (free expression), which we similarly relate to the tech sector today. #ICCPR:…
