The International Bill of Human Rights is comprised
of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International
Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR),
and the International Covenant on Civil and Political
Rights (CCPR). The Commission on Human Rights drafted
a preliminary international bill of human rights in 1947.
Originally, the Commission on Human Rights wanted an International
Covenant on Human Rights (CHR) to give life to the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights, and to legally oblige states
to fulfill certain rights. Between 1949 and 1966, many
drafts of this document were created. Ultimately, however,
the commission decided to use the two specialized treaties,
the CESCR and the CCPR, instead of just the CHR.
