Abstract and Keywords

In 1948, in the aftermath of WWII, and before the development of ethics codes in psychology, the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to protect people of all nations from harm. In 2008, 60 years later, in an increasingly globalized world, the International Union of Psychological Science and the International Association of Applied Psychology adopted the Universal Declaration of Ethical Principles for Psychologists. This latter declaration commits psychologists world-wide to be guided by fundamental ethical principles of respect and caring in all of psychology's interactions with persons and peoples. This chapter demonstrates how fundamental human rights in the world and ethical principles in psychology were each recognized through a universal declaration, how the approach to building a better world has evolved over time, and how the two universal declarations complement and strengthen each other in meeting today's global challenges for achieving freedom, justice, and peace in the world.

Keywords: Universal Declaration, declaration, ethics, rights, human rights, ethical principles, lobalization
