Human rights are the rights and freedoms that have been given to people from the moment of their conception. Recognizing and protecting these rights is one of the essential duties of every human being. Despite all these rights and freedoms, human life can be trivialized worldwide, and these rights can be ignored. How does the international law mechanism work, and is it sufficient to protect these rights and freedoms?
We invite you to the international panel, where people who have worked in this field from different parts of the world will speak and present their perspectives.
