Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

December 6-8, 2023, Paris France

This December will mark the 75th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). While progress has been made over the last 75 years to provide greater protection for human rights, these rights remain under threat. To celebrate the ongoing relevance of the UDHR, the ABA International Law Section is partnering with the Paris Bar Association to present a three-day Conference that will focus on the achievements, challenges, and road ahead for the UDHR and human rights more generally, particularly from the perspective of businesses and their legal representatives.
