The Future of Human Rights

The Future of Human Rights

7/9/22 - 7/16/22

Human rights have long been held as foundational, moral principles protected by national and international law. In this week, Chautauqua looks to the future of human rights both abroad and at home. Great strides have been made across the globe in the more than 70 years since the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights; indeed, human rights have become central to the conversation regarding peace, security and development, and more explicit protections in international law now protect women, children, victims of torture and many other populations. There is much to be celebrated, and still much to be accomplished. What work must still be done in this critical global field, central to our ethics and morality as a human species? What newly recognized rights will shape this work going forward?

About Chautauqua Institution: Chautauqua Institution is a community on the shores of Chautauqua Lake in southwestern New York state that comes alive each summer with a unique mix of fine and performing arts, lectures, interfaith worship and programs, and recreational activities. As a community, we celebrate, encourage and study the arts and treat them as integral to all of learning, and we convene the critical conversations of the day to advance understanding through civil dialogue. CHQ Assembly is the online expression of Chautauqua Institution's mission.
