ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
The significance of human rights has grown over the centuries and the post Second World War era witnessed a new dimension in the promotion and protection of human rights whereby reliance has been placed on a set of values which are essential for human development. The
UNO was founded in 1945 to reinforce human rights and fundamental freedoms, and to maintain international peace and security. Recognizing the significance of human rights, the UN General Assembly adopted UDHR in the year 1948. Subsequently, the concept of human rights got impetus through international human rights documents. With the passage of time, human rights obtained concrete forms when the nation states adopted good governance by incorporating them in their constitutions.
Through the initiatives of the UN and with the support of the nation states, human rights and fundamental freedoms of the individuals have been well defined through the identification and formulation of the same at the international and national frameworks. Initially, the focus was to enumerate the civil and political rights and the social, economic and cultural rights. The next stage of development of human rights looked into the problems of vulnerable sections including women, children, indigenous peoples, etc. and identified the measures to be adopted for the realization of human rights of these sections.
