Thirteenth Article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Route to Human RightsArticle 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights guarantees freedom of movement and residence within the borders of any state, as well as the right to leave and return to any country, including one’s own. This freedom is fundamental to personal fulfillment and the development of individual identity, as it allows people to choose where to live, work and raise a family. The ability to move freely also promotes cultural and economic exchange and contributes to the enrichment of societies.

In addition, this article protects the right to migrate and seek new opportunities or refuge in other countries, which is particularly important in contexts of persecution, conflict and natural disasters. The protection of these rights is essential to ensure the safety and well-being of displaced persons and refugees. By guaranteeing these freedoms, Article 13 promotes a more open and caring world in which everyone can seek and build a dignified and secure life in the place of their choice.

The plaque with Article 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is located in the Town Hall of Grandas de Salime.
