It fully cov­ers the norms pro­vid­ing for a full life of a per­son, find­ing a wor­thy place in so­ci­ety, en­sur­ing all rights. The 30-ar­ti­cle dec­la­ra­tion in­cor­po­rated the prin­ci­ples of equal­ity, jus­tice, kind­ness, to this doc­u­ment to­day 193 coun­tries are at­tached.

The first doc­u­ment to which Uzbek­istan joined since in­de­pen­dence was the Uni­ver­sal Dec­la­ra­tion of Hu­man Rights. Our Con­sti­tu­tion is in­ter­con­nected with the Dec­la­ra­tion; in it life and hu­man rights are des­ig­nated as the high­est value.

The 70th an­niver­sary of the adop­tion of the dec­la­ra­tion is of par­tic­u­lar im­por­tance for the Uzbek peo­ple. A strik­ing con­fir­ma­tion of this is the De­cree of the Pres­i­dent of our coun­try “On the pro­gram of events ded­i­cated to the 70th an­niver­sary of the Uni­ver­sal Dec­la­ra­tion of Hu­man Rights” dated May 5, 2018. In or­der to en­sure the ex­e­cu­tion of the de­cree, a pro­gram of mea­sures is be­ing im­ple­mented in our coun­try. Events are or­ga­nized to in­crease the at­ten­tion of the state, so­ci­ety and cit­i­zens to the prin­ci­ples and val­ues of the Uni­ver­sal Dec­la­ra­tion of Hu­man Rights. Mea­sures are be­ing taken to fur­ther im­prove the sys­tem of or­ga­ni­za­tional, le­gal and other mea­sures aimed at re­li­able pro­tec­tion of hu­man rights and free­doms, in­creas­ing the ef­fec­tive­ness of mech­a­nisms and pro­ce­dures for im­ple­ment­ing leg­is­la­tion and prac­ti­cal ac­tiv­ity of state bod­ies of in­ter­na­tional stan­dards in the field of hu­man rights and free­doms.

Ac­cord­ing to the pro­gram, in­ter­na­tional events ded­i­cated to this date will be or­ga­nized in Uzbek­istan. The Asian Fo­rum on Hu­man Rights will be held on Novem­ber 22-23 of this year in the city of Sa­markand. The fo­rum is ex­pected to be at­tended by rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the UN and other in­ter­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tions, heads of in­sti­tu­tions en­gaged in the pro­tec­tion of hu­man rights in the Asian con­ti­nent, le­gal schol­ars and oth­ers.

Now, thor­ough prepa­ra­tion for the fo­rum is in full swing. Dur­ing the fo­rum, the par­tic­i­pants, di­vided into ses­sions, will con­duct a di­a­logue on rel­e­vant top­ics. They will con­sider the norms pro­vided for in the dec­la­ra­tion, the uni­ver­sal­ity of eco­nomic, so­cial, cul­tural, civil rights, their in­ter­re­la­tion­ship, achieve­ments and prob­lems in the area of ful­fill­ing hu­man rights obli­ga­tions. The role of ex­ec­u­tive, rep­re­sen­ta­tive and leg­isla­tive power, the court and na­tional hu­man rights in­sti­tu­tions in pro­tect­ing hu­man rights and pro­mot­ing hu­man rights and achiev­ing the Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment Goals will be dis­cussed.

As a re­sult of the Asian Fo­rum, it is planned to adopt the Sa­markand Dec­la­ra­tion on Hu­man Rights. It pro­vides for the cre­ation of an ef­fec­tive sys­tem for the ob­ser­vance and pro­tec­tion of hu­man rights and fun­da­men­tal free­doms by the state in ac­cor­dance with in­ter­na­tional in­stru­ments.

In the frame­work of the Asian Fo­rum, the lead­ers of the na­tional hu­man rights in­sti­tu­tions of Cen­tral Asia will dis­cuss the sit­u­a­tion in their coun­try re­gard­ing hu­man rights, the ar­eas of co­op­er­a­tion be­tween na­tional hu­man rights in­sti­tu­tions.

Fol­low­ing the re­sults of the fo­rum, it is also planned to adopt in Tashkent a joint state­ment of na­tional hu­man rights in­sti­tu­tions in Cen­tral Asia.
