About Seminar

Human rights are a collection of standards that regulate how states and non-state entities treat individuals and groups based on ethical ideas about what society considers vital to a decent existence. These standards are incorporated into national and international legal systems, which establish processes and procedures for holding duty bearers responsible and providing reparation to claimed victims of human rights breaches.

Deepening poverty, growing inequality, institutional and persistent discrimination, and other inadequacies in human rights protection have all added to the worldwide COVID-19 catastrophe. Just measures to close these holes and progress and development in basic liberties can guarantee full recuperation of the world, that is better and stronger, just and maintainable.
