Ttwelfth Article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Route to Human Rights

The twelfth article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that no one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks on his honor or reputation. This article protects the fundamental right to privacy, guaranteeing that everyone can live without fear of being watched or harassed without just cause. Privacy is essential for the development of personality and for individual freedom, as it allows people to express themselves and make decisions without external pressure.

Furthermore, the twelfth article stipulates that everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks. This means that states are obliged to establish and enforce laws that safeguard the privacy and reputation of their citizens. Legal protection against interference and attacks not only preserves human dignity, but also fosters an environment of mutual respect and peaceful coexistence. Thus, this article ensures that people can live in dignity and security, free from arbitrary interventions that may harm their personal and social well-being.

The plaque with Article 12 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is located on the front wall of Las Grandas Hotel in Vistalegre.
