“How Can Europe Do More to Advance Human Rights”

Commemorating Human Rights Day 2012

December 4th – 5th 2012, Brussels

Brussels – European Parliament & European Economic and Social Council

The Universal Peace Federation (UPF) in cooperation with the Women’s Federation for World Peace (WFWP) and The European Economic & Social Committee, cordially invites you to attend our European Leadership Conference “What More Can Europe Do To Advance Human Rights?” on Tuesday December 4th and Wednesday December 5th 2012 in Brussels.

A programme for the Conference is attached. Europe has lead the world in advancing understanding and implementation of Human Rights everywhere. And yet all too often “man’s inhumanity to man” with all the consequent suffering it causes, predominates. This conference proceeds from the conviction that whilst U.N. Human Rights Day is an occasion to celebrate what has been achieved, there is no room at all for complacency and we can and must do better! So, we will take advantage of the spotlight that U.N. Human Right’s Day will shine on this area to pose the question: “What more can Europe do to advance Human Rights?

The conference is part of a series of European Leadership Conferences on issues of pressing concern for Europe and the world, held during 2011-2012 at the United Nations in Geneva and in Vienna, at UNESCO in Paris, in National Parliaments in the United Kingdom and in Norway, and in the Presidential Palace in Malta. We expect speakers and participants from all over Europe.

International participants should arrive in Brussels by the evening of 3rd December and will be accommodated in the Thon Hotel EU Rue de la Loi 75 B-1040 Brussels (Tel: +32 (0)2 204 3911). A fee of 320 Euros will include a two night stay (with departure on 5th December) sharing a twin bedded room with meals and all aspects of the programme on 4th and 5th December (extra nights ?80 per person in twin bedded accommodation, single accommodation extra 140 Euros per night).

To notify us of your wish to attend, please use the Online Registration link. We look forward to hearing from you soon and hope that you will be able to join us for this very timely and meaningful conference.

Yours sincerely,

Robin Marsh, Secretary General  Mobile: 07956210768
