- The 'Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, passed by France's National Constituent Assembly in August 1789, is a fundamental document of the French Revolution and in the history of human rights.  It defines the individual and collective rights of all the estates of the realm as universal. The Declaration was directly influenced by Thomas Jefferson working with General LaFayette, who introduced it. Influenced also by the doctrine of “natural right", the rights of man are held to be universal: valid at all times and in every place, pertaining to human nature itself. It became the basis for a nation of free individuals protected equally by law. It is included in the preamble of the constitutions of both the Fourth French Republic (1946) and Fifth Republic (1958) and is still current. Inspired in part by the American Revolution, the Declaration was a core statement of the values of the French revolution and had a major impact on the development of liberty and democracy in Europe and worldwide.
- The French title is sometimes translated as "Declaration of Human and Civic Rights."
