Higher School of Economics and Public Policy Department concluded its annual Human Rights Week on December 15th. The week-long event was filled with activities, discussions, film screenings, talks and debates, dealing with burning human rights issues in and across the world today: ranging from refugee rights to lives in conflict zones. Over the week of events, we had 20 expert speakers both from within Russia and abroad, including international human rights lawyer Karinna Moskalenko and leading human rights activist Svetlana Gannushkina.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a milestone document which underpins the international human rights law and inspires us to continue to work to ensure all people can gain freedom, equality, and dignity. In 2018 UDHR turns 70! The students of the Master’s Program “Political Analysis and Public Policy” of the Higher School of Economics wants to celebrate this event with a week full of academic debates and discussions.
