The Future of Human Rights

2018 Panel Debate

What is the future of Human Rights? Do they need to be re-evaluated and adapted to today’s societies? Is this a national affair or transnational? Have we already forgotten the not too distant past, and is the questioning of Human Rights a signal of danger?

Humanity in Action Denmark, International Debate CBS and Johan Borups Højskole joined forces and invited experts to discuss exactly these questions.

Thanks to the speakers for bringing their expertise and energy into the debate.
