Expert Meeting: "70 years Universal Declaration of Human Rights – A time for concern or celebration?"

The German Institute for Human Rights, Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, Forum Menschenrechte and the Geneva Academy for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law are inviting to discuss the significance and impact of the Declaration today. How relevant is the UDHR in times that see the rise in both horizontal and vertical inequality as well as increasing political instability? How has the international human rights landscape, as well as concrete human rights priorities changed? Is the scope of rights still adequate to actual challenges in the 21st century? And to what extent can current international human rights instruments be utilized to achieve some of the standards outlined in the Declaration?

The public event on Monday evening will address challenges for human rights defenders at different levels of society and politics to help strengthen human rights standards in policy making and discourse.

Conference language is English. A detailed programme will be published soon.
