Human Rights Week 2018
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.
The official opening of the event will include presentations and speeches by experts active in the sphere of human rights. The first days will be followed by round table discussions, where students are welcome to engage in lively conversations on human rights matters with the invited experts. Each discussion table will be assigned a one of the three themes related to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights:
1. «70th Anniversary of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights: What Still Needs to be Done?
2. «Economic and Social Rights»
3. «Political and Civic Rights»
The closing of the event will be marked by Theater Performance “Cinderella: A Human Rights Perspective”.
We will be happy to see everyone interested in questions concerning human rights during Human Rights week.
