#BAD13 Human Rights Quiz

We read, and some of us write, a great deal about rights abuse, but  it’s rare to see concrete references to the famous United Nations declaration which underpins and enshrines those rights. For this year’s Blog Action Day, I have devised a short quiz to test our knowledge of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. I hope you will take part, and that you find it interesting and informative.
