Human Rights

Human Rights

Protecting human rights remains the central theme of the contemporary world’s most important challenges. From racial discrimination protests in the US to COVID-19 pandemic sparked debates on affordable healthcare, and from concerns about mass atrocities undermining human dignity to growing debates on climate change and sustainable development –human rights have always occupied the central stage. While the fundamentals of human rights remain unchanged, the emerging challenges are nudging for reinvention of the future of transnational human rights norms.

With digitization and globalization, we live in a world of greater connectivity but paradoxically we also live in times of greater fragmentation within the international community and multilateral institutions. Rising inequality and poverty, increasing incidence of hate crimes against minority groups, threats of climate change, and oppression of women all point to inefficient and insufficient action to drive compliance to human rights. It is time, more than ever, that we need human rights to navigate through these unprecedented times and determine consolidated efforts to hold governments and citizens accountable.

At FSI, we seek to find deeper understanding and consensus on human rights related issues and how we can act as a global community to address these issues collectively and advance towards more justice, greater dignity, respect for human equality – and better solutions for the world.
