Fundamental Human Rights

On December 10, 1948, the United Nations General Assembly approved the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, establishing the right to “freedom of thought, conscience and religion,” as well as the right to “freedom of opinion and expression” for people throughout the world regardless of race, gender or age.

Though most of the world’s nations acknowledge such principles in theory, after 60 years basic freedoms of expression and belief are still under challenge – across the globe, and here in the United States. The President’s Forum on International Human Rights will explore these challenges and the efforts underway to protect these fundamental rights in the United States and throughout the world.
