The Human Rights Week 2013 website acknowledges UN Human Rights Day on Tuesday 10 December which every year celebrates human rights, highlights a specific issue, and advocates for the full enjoyment of all human rights by everyone everywhere. In 2013, the spotlight is on the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, under the slogan ’20 years working for your rights’. The international day generates many events in the days before and after 10 December leading to a de facto ‘Human Rights Week’.
