Blueprint for Peace, Justice and Freedom

Two representatives of the Centre attended the International Conference celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Blueprint for Peace, Justice and Freedom, organized by the Canadian Human Rights Foundation and the University of Alberta. Over 1200 delegates from more than 30 countries, gathered to hear 68 speakers and chairpersons, discuss and assess progress respecting a great variety of world human rights issues. One general theme developed during the Conference: The Universal Declaration of Human Rights has been the basis of many constitutional and legislative instruments which protect human rights and freedoms throughout the world. Also discussed was the impact of the recent decision of the House of Lords in the Pinochet case.
