Meeting Room ABC

Prof. Douglas Simon from Drew University, discusses the whole concept of universal human rights and assesses the impact of current global political movements on the human rights movement.

Having witnessed the horrors of the Holocaust, the international community in the immediate post-World War II era, experienced a flurry of activity on behalf of human rights.  The most significant action was the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. But efforts to advance human rights around the world are too often hindered or outright blocked by pragmatic political considerations.  This presentation discusses the whole concept of universal human rights, reviews the record of several post-WW II presidents, and assesses the impact of current global political movements on the human rights movement.

Speaker: Prof. Douglas Simon. Prof. Emeritus Drew University.  Political Science & International Relationships Dept.
