At a time when the Commission on Human Rights of the United Nations was still in the process of preparing the Draft Universal Declaration (from May 1947 to June 1948), as recalled by the rapporteur
of the Commission (René Cassin); the inclusion in the Universal Declaration of the provision on the right to an effective remedy by the competent national tribunals (Article 8), inspired by the counterpart provision of the American Declaration (Article XVIII), took place in the subsequent debates (of 1948) of the III Committee of the United Nations General Assembly.
