On the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Cartooning for Peace, an international network of newspaper cartoonists, has joined with the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights, Dunja Mijatović, and the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs to stage a travelling exhibition called “Human rights – still some way to go”
“The exhibition highlights the founding principle that we are all born free and equal in dignity and rights. It invites visitors to give practical effect to the vision of hope, freedom and universalism conveyed by the Universal Declaration,” said Commissioner Mijatović. “The exhibition cartoons also pay tribute to all those fighting on the front line to protect human rights”.
With 30 newspaper cartoons, the exhibition reminds us of the relevance of the Universal Declaration against a background in which its values and principles are currently under serious threat.
The preview of the Cartooning for Peace exhibition will take place on 10 December 2018, International Human Rights Day, at the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs in Paris.
