Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Note: this collection will be updated weekly until all 30 articles of the Declaration have a cartoon.


This year, the world celebrates the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). Together with the United Nations Human Rights Office (OHCHR) and the government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, we launched a project creating cartoons about the importance of the UDHR. Out of over 500 cartoons sent in from all over the world we created an official selection of 60 cartoons. From these, 30 winning cartoons were selected; one for each article of the UDHR.
