Human rights in today’s world (WP1515)
- 15 February, 2017
- Human rights, good governance and faith
- human rights, new powers
We discuss the key elements that are having an impact on human rights and ask if they are positive or negative. We also discuss the emergence of new powers and ask if they are having an effect on how human rights are being defended.
