This year, in conjunction with Human Rights Day on the 10th of December 2008 and the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948, the Bar Council Human Rights Committee has decided that we need not walk. We should talk. We will be organizing a unique ‘Human Rights Debate’ tournament which seeks to attract participants from universities and schools, as well as members of the public to debate on the theme “UDHR @ 60 and still not all is right”. The Debate preliminary rounds will be held in KDU College (Petaling Jaya Campus).
The key objective of the tournament is to promote human rights awareness in our country. We seek to attract more than 300 debaters from around the world. We hope that the Debate will help bridge ethnic, linguistic and cultural gaps to foster respect and understanding on various rights-related issues in the country. It should also be the preferred platform for the discussion of international and national policies.
