In the News: Mark Bradley on the 70th Anniversary of the UDHR
On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Mark Bradley (Pozen Center Faculty Director) published a commemorative piece on the AHA Perspectives Daily blog.
He writes, “When an American president believes in torture, in banning Muslims, and in putting the children of immigrants in cages, it is a dark moment to observe the 70th anniversary of Universal Declaration of Human Rights in the United States. Do Americans still remember the aspirations embedded in that revolutionary document? Can the values and transformative political projects that drove the human rights moment of the 1940s be recovered and repurposed 70 years on?”
