Synopsis

On the fiftieth anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, hundreds of people gathered in Edmonton, Alberta to reflect on the accomplishments of the Declaration and current challenges to human rights. This volume offers their collective insights. Participants in this landmark conference included: Desmond Tutu, Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Town; Francine Fournier, Assistant Director General of UNESCO; Her Excellency Mary Robinson, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights; and The Right Honourable Antonio Lamer, Chief Justice of Canada. "From federal ministers, to Chinese and Vietnamese dissidents, to academics, the judiciary, advocates for the poor, the disabled, the disenfranchised and the minorities; the delegates engaged in vibrant and compassionate dialogue which was both enriching and worrisome." --Canadian Senate Debates
