Roundtable Series: Human Rights Today
The universality of human rights is increasingly questioned. The redistribution of power in international society has given renewed assertiveness to actors such as China, Russia and some Southern states, who criticize the Universal Declaration of Human Rights for being too Western-centric. It would probably not be possible today to sign the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as happened in 1948 after World War II at the instigation of a group of Latin American countries.
This roundtable series co-organized with The Social Observatory - "la Caixa" Foundation series seeks to address the growing questioning of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as well as the current situation of some of them, such as the human rights of migrants, children, and women in conflict.
