Human Rights Day 2013

11 December 2013
Arts Tower Lecture Theatre 5 and 6

Human Rights Day 2014 celebrated the 20th anniversary of the mandate of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and this forms the broad theme for the School of Law’s 2nd Human Rights Forum. The past two decades have seen much progress in the human rights sphere… but many challenges remain. To what extent has the UNHCHR fulfilled its mandate? What are its prospects for the next twenty years?
