Celebrating 70 years of Universal Human Rights

2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR)

This March, the British Institute of Human Rights is celebrating universal human rights, from the UDHR to the Human Rights Act.

As part of our March for Human Rights celebrations we will be running our annual Human Rights Tour.

You can also get involved with March for Human Rights online. We are looking for creative individuals and organisations who want to get involved in making some positive noise about human rights online, if you're interested, let us know.

What is the Human Rights Tour?

Our Human Rights Tour is a series of free to attend community events across the UK. Come along to get current, accurate information about the relevance of human rights law in the UK and how it protects us. We will be looking at our human rights history, celebrating how we got to where we are today, and thinking about our human rights future.

Everyone is welcome. Individuals working in the public sector and the voluntary sector are encouraged to attend.
