“We the peoples of the United Nations determined…to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small…”  Charter of the United Nations, 1945

 

The preamble of the United Nations Charter outlines the principle of human equality that has long been recognized by people across the world, but which is all too frequently forgotten and disregarded. Despite the commitment of UN member states to promote equality, discrimination based on gender, race, national origin, cultural background, age, or sexual orientation, as well as other forms of discrimination, remain prevalent across the world. It is in recognition of this inequality that the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy has established the “Born Equal” project.

“Born Equal” is initiative project of the ICD that aims not only to raise awareness of discrimination, but also to support a diverse range of activity that promotes equality at different levels, in different regions of the world. The initiative is fully interactive and its goal is to bring together academics, politicians, diplomats, journalists, private sector representatives, civil society practitioners, students and other stakeholders, in support of this cause.
