Web-/Bookinar with Christian Friis Bach and discussants Steven L.B. Jensen, The Danish Institute for Human Rights and Annette Skovsted Hansen, Aarhus University (event in Danish)
In this webinar, Christian Friis Bach will present his new book Then I would like a dishwasher, please: A human rights-based strategy to development. About the book (from the publisher):
“The international human rights have created monumental changes in the world. They express, more beautifully than anything else, the vision that all citizens deserve a life in dignity, freedom, and security. This vision should be the foundation for both foreign policy, development policy, international cooperation and for day-to-day leadership and management. Then I would like a dishwasher, please is an academic review and a practitioner’s guide to a human rights-based strategy with stories from places and people from all over the world. It demonstrates how the international human rights can be used not only as goals, but also as an approach based on the human rights principles: Accountability, transparency, participation, and equality. The book argues that a human rights-based strategy can and should be used at all levels and everywhere in both governments, private companies and in civil society organisations.”
Christians presentation of the book will be followed by comments by Steven L.B. Jensen, The Danish Institute for Human Rights and Annette Skovsted Hansen, Aarhus University.
