To mark the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, The Graduate Centre in Governance and International Affairs is pleased to invite you to its second annual roundtable event - The UN Declaration of Human Rights at 70: Looking Forward. Looking Back.

Created in 1948, this year marks the 70th anniversary of this milestone document. The Graduate Center is bringing together an expert panel to reflect upon the triumphs and challenges of the UN Declaration of Human Rights (UNDHR). The panel will discuss the influence of the Declaration on politics in the past and the important role the Declaration continues to play today and into the future: what has the UNDHR meant in practice and what are the prospects for the vision expressed in the Declaration going forward?"
