On March 21

On this day in ...
... 2005, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan presented to the General Assembly a 5-year progress report on the Millennium Declaration. Entitled "In Larger Freedom: Towards Development, Security and Human Rights for All," the report endorsed the nascent concept of "responsibility to protect," and further proposed a variety of reforms for the United Nations. Among those subsequently implemented was the replacement of the Commission on Human Rights with the Human Rights Council.
