HUMAN RIGHTS 25 YEARS AFTER October 1st, 2014 Prague Crossroads (Part III)

PANEL II. REFLECTIONS ON THE CURRENT STATE OF HUMAN RIGHTS IN THE WORLD What is the state of human rights globally, 25 years after the fall of the Iron Curtain? Are we doing any better? Who is scoring better and who is losing? How has the concept of basic human rights developed in 25 years? What are the new innovative concepts to define human rights? And what are the proper tools and incentives to improve the situation? MODERATOR MARTIN PALOUŠ (Václav Havel Library, Czech Republic) SHIN DONG-HYUK (NGO Inside NK, North Korean defector) JESUIT REFUGEE SERVICE MALTA (the finalist of the Václav Havel Human Rights Prize 2014, represented by Katrine Camilleri)

„Je totiž vůbec otázka, zda „světlejší budoucnost“ je opravdu a vždy jen záležitostí nějakého vzdáleného „tam“. Co když je to naopak něco, co je už dávno zde, – a jenom naše slepota a slabost nám brání to kolem sebe a v sobě vidět a rozvíjet? “
