Video message by António Guterres, United Nations Secretary-General on the occasion of Human Rights Day 2019 (10 December) Video: United Nations

This year, on Human Rights Day, we celebrate the role of young people in bringing human rights to life.

For more than seventy years the Universal Declaration of Human Rights has been a milestone document that proclaimed the inalienable rights which everyone is entitled to -- regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, language or other status.

Message by Mr. Tijjani Muhammad-Bande, President of the United Nations General Assembly, on the occasion of Human Rights Day (10 December 2019) Video:  UN

Corruption affects people in their daily lives. It bars them from accessing resources and opportunities. It erodes trust in public institutions and compromises the social contract. In doing so, corruption thwarts our attempts at building a better world.

Every year an estimated 2.6 trillion dollars are stolen through corruption.

Message by Mr. Tijjani Muhammad-Bande, President of the United Nations General Assembly on the occasion of International Anti-Corruption Day (UN) 9 December 2019 Video: UN

Every year, trillions of dollars – the equivalent of more than five percent of global Gross Domestic Product – are paid in bribes or stolen through corrupt practices that seriously undermine the rule of law and abet crimes such as the illicit trafficking of people, drugs and arms.
