Recover Better – Stand Up for Human Rights 0 Reply

Human Rights Day is observed every year on 10 December — the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted, in 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). The UDHR is a milestone document that proclaims the inalienable rights which everyone is entitled to as a human being – regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. The focus of the Human Rights Day 2020 is Recover Better – Stand Up for Human Rights. 2020 theme is related to the COVID-19 pandemic and focuses on the need to build back better by ensuring Human Rights are central to recovery efforts. As Human rights are at the heart of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we cannot hope to drive sustainable development in the absence of human dignity. To reach the SDGs, equal opportunities for all should be created, failures exposed by Covid-19 pandemic addressed and human rights standards applied to tackle systematic inequalities, exclusion and discrimination.

Against this backdrop, Dialogue Café Network is organising a session to celebrate the Human Rights Day and reaffirm the importance of human rights in re-building a new world based on global solidarity, interconnectedness, solidarity and equality. Special guests invited to analyse how the Covid-19 pandemic is rising poverty, inequalities, discrimination and other gaps in human rights protection as well as to share their views and motivations on how better recover from the effects of this global pandemic and propose measures to recover and build back a better world, more resilient, just and sustainable.

Some of the questions to be raised during the debate will be:

  • According to your knowledge and experience, in which sense the Covid-19 pandemic has affected Human Rights?
  • Has the covid-19 crisis fuelled structural discrimination and racism? If yes, how?
  • What measures can be proposed in order to end discrimination of any kind in a post-Covid world?
  • In which way Covid-19 pandemic has affected, already existing, inequalities? How to promote and protect economic, social and cultural rights in the new era?
  • Working together is essential to recover from this global crisis. From individuals to governments, from civil society and grass-roots communities to the private sector, we all have a role in building a post-COVID world that is better for present and future generations. Kindly share your opinion and views on how better encourage participation and solidarity. Share your opinion about best measures to ensure all voices are heard in this process, especially the voices from the most affected and vulnerable.
  • Sustainable development is a must. The association between Human Rights and the 2030 Agenda is unalienable. How to act in order to ensure no one is left behind?
