The European Parliament will host a Human Rights Week from 19 to 23 November to mark the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Adopted on 10 December 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights set down for the first time the fundamental rights and freedoms inherent to all people.
To mark the 70th anniversary, the Parliament will organise a week of events, including a conference in Brussels on Tuesday 20 November. It will bring together representatives from around the world to discuss issues, including the defence of human rights in a digital world, the defence of minorities, and human rights monitoring.
