Human Rights

“Culture is Our DNA”

By Aleksandar Brisevac, The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy.

Between May 27th and June 1st 2013, the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy in Berlin held a Symposium on Cultural Diplomacy and Human Rights “Towards a Global Human Rights Culture: The Need for a Collective Alliance in the Protection & Promotion of Human Rights”.

The conference provided the platform for activists, experts, academics and world leaders involved in the field of Human Rights to come together, create alliances, and better coordinate their activities, thus promoting better implementation and enforcement of Human Rights in a more effective nature.

One of the speakers at the Symposium was Ms. Katalin Bogyay, President of UNESCO’s General Conference.

“..wherever you go, whatever you do, wherever you are representing your values and your beliefs, we have to all push together so that we could all agreed that the post 2015 development agenda must have culture as one of the basic pillars, because it is the culture that nurtures those values that we as human beings need in order to give an economic development a human face”.
