Type:Dag Hammarskjöld Lectures


Human Rights issues have increasingly come into focus during the course of the 1990’s. In international organisations and movements, in meetings and conferences, and in concerned newspapers and journals as well as other media, human rights are receiving more and more attention. This emphasis is not only an indication of a number of human rights violations, but also reflects an increased awareness on the part of both governments and civil society organisations.
