Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 14

December 10 is the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Each day leading up to that date, we’ll post one of the thirty articles of the declaration.

Article 14

1. Everyone has the right to seek and to enjoy in other countries asylum from persecution.

2. This right may not be invoked in the case of prosecutions genuinely arising from non-political crimes or from acts contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations.
