In this 70th anniversary year of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, our world is suffering rising nationalism and its repugnant shadow: racism and xenofobia! Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein
The Geneva International Film Festival And Forum on Human Rights Index : The State of Human Rights in the World Today
“What is happening to us? When human rights increasingly have to be defended, everywhere. When our outrage finds no respite and our concerns over violations only heighten, instead of ebbing, even in countries that are prosperous and stable. How is
it a child can easily understand the critical need to uphold human rights – the idea of fairness – and yet their significance seem to defeat so many governments?” wondered UN High Commissioner Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein in a recent speech delivered in New York.
As 2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, UN HCHR Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein will deliver a keynote address on the state of human rights in the world. A special message, followed by a moderated conversation and a Q&A with the public.
