Creating a Human Rights Culture

Creating a Human Rights Culture includes interviews, discussions, public service announcements, and videos calling for a "lived awareness" of the interdependency of human rights principles, as defined by the Human Rights Triptych, in our minds and hearts, and dragged into our everyday lives. Such principles include human dignity, non-discrimination, civil, political, economic, social, and solidarity rights.
