Do Human Rights Have a Future?

SOLD OUT: Add your name to the wait-list below

Dr. William F. Schulz, Former Executive Director, Amnesty International USA; President, Unitarian Universalist Service Committee

During the last half of the 20th century, human rights became a plumb line against which the international community measured a country’s respectability. Today human rights are nominally accepted as the lingua franca of international relations, invoked by politicians, jurists and young people leading revolutions in the Middle East. In this address, Schulz will outline the major human rights challenges around the globe today and reflect on how our understanding of human rights may change in the future
