ISHR Belarus holds human rights competitions on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the UDHR
On the eve of the 70th anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the UN in 1948, the Belarusian section of the ISHR has announced a call for submission of written work for two thematic competitions for school children and university students of the Republic of Belarus.
Students are given an opportunity to use their knowledge of the provisions of the Declaration to subjectively reinterpret existing problems in the field of the implementation of certain categories of human rights, suggesting original ways and methods to solve them.
Schoolchildren are invited to write an essay on the topic “The contemporary significance of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights”, to demonstrate its importance for the international community and for each person as a whole, expressing their attitude to the ideas embodied by this universal document.
More details with the requirements for the works and conditions of the competitions can be found at: schoolchildren, students (in Russian). Laureates of both competitions will be awarded at the jubilee events of the Belarusian section of the ISHR and the Brest Human Rights Group on December 7–8, 2018.
This is not the first time that the organization has held competitions on the eve of International Human Rights Day on December 10, as well as on other anniversary dates. For example, the winners of the last competition, dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the adoption of the Vienna Declaration, visited the PACE winter session of 2014 (see photo).
