On November 26th 2019 the department of International and European Law welcomed Birgit Van Hout , Regional Representative for Europe, UN Human Rights Office (OHCHR). Mss Van Hout addressed our law students with several questions regarding the rights and freedoms codified in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. She emphasized on the importance of the UN Charter and the human right based approach for the protection of these universal values. Our students were very eager to ask her questions that turned this lecture into a very enriching experience for everyone. We are very grateful to the entire team at the United Nations Human Rights Office in Brussels for this opportunity.
