Despite their adoption in 1948, it would be over a half a century before the UDHR and the CPPCG would be enforced for the first time. What is the explanation for this long delay in the enforcement of these documents?

UDHR - Universal Declaration of Human Rights
CPPCG - Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide
I have to explain why there was such a delay for the enforcement of both documents. I've been trying to find websites to help me, but I haven't found anything.

Did you find any information.

Thanks for the explanation.
Have you Googled these documents? What do you find?
The basic reason is that most nations don't want international agreements to intefere with the way they conduct their affairs.
