Take a closer look at some of the events and stories taking place across the world to stand up for human rights.


Admire the Universal Declaration of Human Rights!

21 May 2019

To celebrate the 70 years of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), Cluny de la Paix – Maison des Echevins and the Cluny Town Hall are joining forces to organize an exhibition. From 11-31 May in Cluny, France, the exhibition ‘Admire the UDHR’ will depict this historic document to a large audience by featuring the 19 original plates inspired by Eric Puybaret, who already illustrated the UDHR on the occasion of its 60th anniversary in partnership with the UN Human Rights Office. Children from Cluny schools are also contributing to the exhibition with drawings on the abolition of slavery.

The entrance to the exhibition is free of charge.
