Description

Theme: Renewing Rights in Times of Transition:  70 Years of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

In 2018 we will celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). At the time of its adoption, none of the drafters nor the UN General Assembly could have calculated the protection of human rights for people across the globe that would grow from the document. Across every country, grassroots campaigners and civil society work to combat inequality across a host of civil, political, social, economic and cultural fronts. The GJA is very enthusiastic about hosting the 2018 AHRI conference. The 70th anniversary of the UDHR presents the prime opportunity to not only reflect on the wide ranging developments that have been achieved in its shadow, but also to critically assess how to maintain a progressive and stable human rights protection system.
