Human Rights and their protection

University of Rzeszów


In 2018 falls the 70th anniversary of passing the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It was the first document ever which contained the catalogue of human rights. Not without reason, it is also called the Bible of Human Rights as many acts of international laws were modeled on it. The anniversary of adopting the Declaration by the United Nations General Assembly is an excellent occasion for reflection over the issue of how often the human rights are violated nowadays. The next question is whether the present system in international law is efficient enough to bring those delinquent to justice.  

The Institute of Political Science of the Faculty of Sociology and History of the University of Rzeszow invites to the 1st International Congress of Human Rights "Human Rights and Protection". We would like to invite all people interested in the issues of human rights and freedoms: scholars, researchers, NGO activists, students, practitioners in need of knowledge about the subject.

The congress will include a scientific conference (22 May) and workshops for high school students and students (23 May), conducted by NGO trainers.
