2014 Asian Symposium on Human Rights Education (SHARE) Hiroshima

  • Conference Call
  • The 2014 edi­tion of the Asian Sym­po­sium on Human Rights Edu­ca­tion (SHARE) will be held at the Mit­sui Gar­den Hotel in Hiroshima, Japan on August 2 – 4, 2014. You are kindly invited by the PRESDA Foun­da­tion to attend and con­tribute to this out­stand­ing event.

    Main Theme: “Human Rights – The Road to Reform“

    The Uni­ver­sal Dec­la­ra­tion of Human Rights was estab­lished by the United Nations in 1948 to forge a new direc­tion for human­ity in which the inher­ent dig­nity and equal and inalien­able rights of all human beings are con­firmed and guar­an­teed. The human rights land­scape today, with its ever-​changing peaks and val­leys, has made some note­wor­thy advances in pro­mot­ing greater access to human rights on a global scale; how­ever, they can­not over­shadow the exist­ing vio­la­tions against human­ity that are aggra­vated through the dis­crim­i­na­tion and mar­gin­al­iza­tion of peoples.

    Human rights, which are deeply inter­twined with a nation’s social, polit­i­cal, and eco­nomic rights, are crit­i­cal to a nation’s well­be­ing and global peace. Unfor­tu­nately, the prob­lems fac­ing them today are wide­spread and com­plex, chal­leng­ing cus­toms and prej­u­dices that are deeply ingrained in the social fab­ric of a soci­ety. At the fore­front in the bat­tle for equal­ity today are women, indige­nous peo­ple, and minori­ties, to name a few.

    In many parts of the world, their rights and path to self-​determination are obstructed by sys­tem­atic dis­crim­i­na­tion and inequal­ity, result­ing in vary­ing degrees of abuse, vio­lence, inad­e­quate wages, forced labor, sup­pres­sion of speech, and over­all dis­em­pow­er­ment. More­over, their sit­u­a­tion is exac­er­bated by a legal sys­tem that opposes them or by their gov­ern­ments’ inabil­ity to pro­tect and pro­mote their rights.

    Hiroshima, Japan, the City of Peace, is proud to host the 2014 Asian Sym­po­sium on Human Rights Edu­ca­tion. The three-​day sym­po­sium in August will pro­vide an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary plat­form for aca­d­e­mics, researchers, pol­icy mak­ers, human rights advo­cates, stu­dents and pro­fes­sion­als. With the theme Human Rights: The Road to Reform, the con­fer­ence will pro­mote a greater under­stand­ing and access to human rights and help to equal­ize the process of globalization.
