This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and the 30th anniversary of the Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action which led to the creation of the United Nations (UN) High Commissioner for Human Rights.
The event, co-organized with Amnesty International, will explore how the international community can ensure that the UDHR continues to serve us for another 75 years. Accordingly, the panelists will discuss human rights gains over the 75 years since the adoption of the UDHR, challenges to the international normative framework on human rights, its gaps in addressing ongoing and future problems, and a way forward to ensure a better future. It is hoped that this event will contribute to global initiatives, including UN-led ones, around the UDHR’s anniversary and spark forward-looking discussions on what is required to ensure comprehensive and effective global human rights governance over the coming century.
