What is the Human Rights Summit?

The International Human Rights Summit serves as a platform for top human rights activists, dignitaries, officials and youth, to exchange ideas, develop plans of action, and forward a movement in the name of international peace. Youth for Human Rights International holds the Summit with the purpose to bring education of the UDHR to the forefront of academic attention as the medium to end the inhumane violations of these rights that plague our society.

Since its inception in 2004 the Human Rights Summit has evolved into a venue to establish international partnerships and friendships with delegates and officials from countries around the world.

The 18th International Human Rights Summit is graciously hosted by the Permanent Mission of Timor-Leste to the United Nations.
