The Ardgan Declaration is a formal treaty expanding guarantees of Human Rights within Anteria. The document outlines things deemed to be basic rights, such as the right to education, women's equality, and the rights of workers. The document has been deemed controversial in some states, such as Hadian. Currently, there are 21 signatories including Foxomexra, Zhousheng, and Encessia.
The document was originally ratified on the 8th of June, 1940. At the time, it only had 7 signatories. Since then, it has gathered an additional 14 signatories, the most recent being The Federation of Mustelaria.
While there are no legal repercussions for entities that violate these rights, the document has laid the framework for several subsequent documents enforcing similar rights. Further, the document has been translated into every National Language in Anteria, and then some, making it one of the most translated documents in the world. The declaration has largely affected countries that have had former issues with human rights or worker's rights, primarily by using the document as justification for intervention.
Contents and Summary
Though mostly progressive throughout its history, Layfet felt that it did not need to become signatory to the agreement until after the end of the Layfetian Civil War. The conflict was a response to the largest recession of human-rights in Layfet's history, thus while Layfet returned to its prior progressive polices after the re-establishment of its democratic government, it signed the document as a political statement re-affirming the nation to the principles of human rights.
