Declaring Our Human Rights
Join members of the ESC Rights Initiative and the Community Platform for a morning of personal narratives in diverse forms to mark the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Declaring our Human Rights will take place in the Irish Human Rights & Equality Commission offices on the 6th December 2018 at 10.30am till 12.30pm (tea/coffee at 10am).
The event will highlight the resolution and accomplishments of groups and individuals in the continuing quest for the protection of human dignity and fundamental freedoms, with a special focus on the indivisibility of civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights.The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted in 1948 as a moral beacon for a world emerging from the unconscionable horrors of war and social degradation visited on nations, communities and families across the world over the preceding decades.Many countries, including Ireland, still struggle to achieve the goals set out in the Universal Declaration while others are discarding established rights. It is therefore proper and timely that we acknowledge the massive achievement in setting down the global ethic that is the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
