After the end of World War II a series of conventions and declarations began to articulate universal human rights. A convention sometimes called a covenant is a binding treaty, coming into force upon ratification by a certain number of States. A declaration is not legally binding but carries moral weight because it is adopted by the international community. The United Nations was established, partly to continue the work of the dissolved League of Nations, in response to proposals for the creation of a new world body to monitor relations between States. The United Nations is an international organisation representing the body of States, established according to the United Nations Charter in There are currently one hundred and ninety two member States.

In the industrialized countries of the early twentieth century, there were no standards of protection for children. It was common for them to work alongside adults in unsanitary and unsafe conditions. Growing recognition of the injustices of their situation, propelled by greater understanding of the developmental needs of children, led to a movement to better protect them. International standards on child rights have advanced dramatically over the past century, but gaps remain in meeting those ideals. The Declaration articulates that all people owe children the right to: means for their development; special help in times of need; priority for relief; economic freedom and protection from exploitation; and an upbringing that instils social consciousness and duty.

The League of Nations was an international diplomatic group developed after World War I as a way to solve disputes between countries before they erupted into open warfare. A precursor to the United Nations, the League achieved some victories but had a mixed record of success, sometimes putting self-interest before becoming involved with conflict resolution, while also contending with governments that did not recognize its authority. The League of Nations has its origins in the Fourteen Points speech of President Woodrow Wilson , part of a presentation given in January outlining of his ideas for peace after the carnage of World War I. Wilson envisioned an organization that was charged with resolving conflicts before they exploded into bloodshed and warfare.
What Are Human Rights? Its roots, however, lie in earlier tradition and documents of many cultures; it took the catalyst of World War II to propel human rights onto the global stage and into the global conscience. Most societies have had traditions similar to the "golden rule" of "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
The organisation's primary goals, as stated in its Covenant , included preventing wars through collective security and disarmament and settling international disputes through negotiation and arbitration.

The Great Powers were often reluctant to do so.
