On March 27, ...

... 2006, the Commission on Human Rights, established pursuant to Art. 68 of the 1945 U.N. Charter, held its last meeting after having been replaced by the new Human Rights Council. Among the Commission's many achievements had been the drafting of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as detailed in Mary Ann Glendon's A World Made New.
