Public lecture by Luca Galantini "The International Promotion of Human Rights: from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as of Today"

Luca Galantini, visiting Professor at the Jagellonian University of Krakow in Poland, University of Turku in Finland.

In less than half a century, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948) has come to be regarded as possibly the single most important document created in the twentieth century and as the accepted world standard for human rights. The Declaration was the first legal document protecting universal human rights: it brought human rights into the realm of international law.

In accordance with the Declaration, the ideal of free human beings enjoying freedom from fear and want can only be achieved if conditions are created whereby everyone may enjoy his or her economic, social and cultural rights, as well as his or her civil and political rights.

Further, the Declaration has given rise to a range of other international agreements which expand on the rights contained in the Declaration, such as the Geneva Conventions, the Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, the Convention against Torture, the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Convention on Elimination of Discrimination against Women, the Convention against Racial Discrimination and the Convention against Genocide.
