A Report Of The Commission’s Edinburgh Meeting

 

As part of our centenary celebrations, the Carnegie UK Trust, with the support of the University of Edinburgh, funded New York University to provide the secretariat to a high profile Global Citizenship Commission. The Commission will re-examine the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and draft a report which will suggest revisions and explore ways of renewing the Declaration for the 21st century.

The inaugural meeting of the Commission took place in Edinburgh, followed by an interactive, high profile, public facing event between the Commissioners and the general public. This summary of the inaugural meeting outlines the work of the Commission on the issue of so-called missing rights, a mechanism for upholding the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, the role of global institutions, and the potential for the Universal Declaration to coalesce a global ethic.
