Towards the Creation of a Human Rights Culture and Creative Dialogue Between Predominately Christian and Predominately Islamic Countries: A Fulbrighter in Pakistan
Dienstag, 17.3.2015, 16.30 - 18.00 Uhr | FH St. Pölten, Seminarraum 2.08
This presentation will discuss the importance and fundamental concepts of creating a human rights culture, which ultimately is a "lived awareness" of human rights principles in one's mind and heart, dragged into our everyday lives, requiring therefore substantive individual character and social transformation. It will emphasize the human rights triptych with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights at the center; human rights covenants and conventions at the right; and implementation measures at the left. The presenter will also discuss his recent experiences as a Fulbrighter in Islamabad, Pakistan where he consulted with the Akhter Hameed Khan Resource Center a policy think tank and gave workshops on "Creating a Human Rights Culture: Towards a Creative Dialogue Between the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and the United States of America" at the United States Educational Foundation of Pakistan. He will also integrate the implications of creating a human rights culture and his experiences in Pakistan for Austria.
