The Arab Human Rights Committee celebrates the Arab Human Rights Day, which was approved by the League of Arab States on March 16 of each year.
The choice of this date comes since it is the day on which the Arab Charter on Human Rights entered into force in 2008 after its adoption in 2004 at the Tunis Summit.
Jusoor International Center for Media and Development congratulates the Arab world on the occasion of Arab Human Rights Day.
