The International Covenants


On the same day that it adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the United Nations General Assembly asked its Commission on Human Rights to draft a Covenant on Human Rights, which could become a binding treaty. After six years of drafting and debate, in 1952 the General Assembly requested that the Commission on Human Rights draft two Covenants rather than one. The two Covenants, the ICCPR and the ICESCR, were opened for signature in 1966 and entered into force in 1976.
