"On the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights"

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations 70 years ago this December. What were the historical circumstances behind it? What role has it played in the seven decades since it was signed? This panel will address these questions, and will examine two specific contexts in which the human rights movement has developed, that of the Cold War and that of Latin American politics.
