Foundations and Founding Figures of Human Dignity

This workshop focuses on developing articles that explore the role of human dignity in the Universal Declaration of Human Right’s (UDHR) drafting, in preparation for a special issue of The Review of Faith & International Affairs. Participants’ articles will focus on key drafters of the UDHR as well as thematic perspectives on human dignity that played an important role in the conceptualization, drafting, successful completion, and eventual adoption of the UDHR. These articles will include a focus on the religious or faith perspectives of the drafters and how those perspectives shaped their views of human dignity, human rights, and freedom of religion and belief.
