On 5 April 2018, staff and postgraduate students in Maynooth University gathered to share their reflections on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) as part of the events in the Department of Law to mark 70 years of this significant human rights instrument.
During the insightful event, participants shared their perspectives on the positive and the negative aspects of the UDHR on both a domestic and an international level. Two of the most common themes from the presentations were: (1) that the UDHR is a remarkable document, and (2) that its aspirational content leaves much room for progress.
This research bulletin provides a summary of the presentations on the day, with an emphasis on showcasing the contributions from postgraduate students in Maynooth University Department of Law.
