Last 70 years have seen dramatic changes in the global landscape, from rise of the private sector to the rise of nationalistic ideologies have brought in new challenges and threats to the universal human rights agenda. The 70th anniversary of the UDHR presents an opportunity to celebrate human rights’ achievements and take stock of the challenges.

“The Declaration for Human Right – a roadmap for a peaceful society”

The year 2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and Anastasia Panayotidis will talk about human rights.

The year 2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). Over the past seven decades, the UDHR is regarded as one of the pillars of a global ethic, a common conscience for humanity – having played a crucial role in sustaining morale among those oppressed, in legitimizing their struggles and in de-legitimizing human rights abuses.

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

From The Universal Declaration for Human Rights:

“Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home – so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. Yet they are the world of the individual person; the neighbourhood he lives in; the school or college he attends; the factory, farm or office where he works. (…) Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere.”

Eleanor Roosevelt, First Chairperson of the Commission on Human Rights, who drafted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights – remarks delivered at the United Nations in New York on 27 March 1958.
