Time: Tuesday, 09 December 2008 14:00-17:00
Place: Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, Drammensveien 78, Oslo

PRIO and the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters invite you to a seminar on the concept of Human Dignity.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is premised on the idea that all human beings have an inherent dignity. But what does that mean?

60 years after the declaration, scholars and practitioners still eagerly debate this thorny and important question.

One of the speakers will be Glenn Hughes, currently a guest researcher at PRIO.
