Contest and Photographic Exhibit “Article 25”

By |2019-02-11T13:40:43+00:00February 11th, 2019|Categories: Sin categoría|

Seventy years ago, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly. The fundamental rights of every human being were formally laid down for the first time in history. At FIRHM-LA we wondered how much of the Declaration’s 30 Articles was respected in Latin America. We found different answers and opinions [...]

In Latin America, is Article 25 from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights respected? Every day, a wide range of differing answers is provided in the media, in reports from official agencies, in papers and lectures by qualified analysts, in informal conversations among friends.

The foundations for the development of FIHRM-LA are now laid, and the team is focused on identifying the most appropriate activities to reach FIHRM-LA’s main objective: to help museums educate their public in respecting and defending the Fundamental Human Rights. When conceiving FIHRM-LA, the chances of ever achieving such a goal were debated. Everyone wondered whether it is [...]

All museums are potential Human Rights Museums

By |2018-10-22T12:18:05+00:00October 22nd, 2018|Categories: News|Tags: , , |

We believe that all museums, whatever their typology, are potential Human Rights Museums. And that is really so because all museums can, from their own perspectives, refer to the rights and duties that regulate the lives of their audiences. It is obvious that museums focus their activities on the topics that concern their typologies. Thus, art [...]

The region, going the wrong way

These are tough times for Latin America and the Caribbean. In recent years, the region has fluctuated between instability and mobilisation. Corruption, inequality, and authoritarian systems have led to widespread frustration, unmet demands and marked unrest in the civil society running across several countries in the region and, further, calling for a change of direction. Futurology [...]

Corruption: the last promise of politics

Corruption is not new in Latin American history. Nevertheless, the great difference lies in that corruption is surfacing from democratic regimes and not hand by hand with dictatorships or kleptocracies. Certainly, this is an issue that can appeal to all citizens alike, connecting the individual to the public, a “direct access” between political practices and individual [...]

Democracy in Latin America: better than it sounds

By |2018-10-20T17:53:59+00:00October 20th, 2018|Categories: News|Tags: , |

Latin America is living a time of democratic pessimism: the downfall of all resemblance of democracy in Venezuela and Nicaragua, the ascent of a fascistoid candidate in Brazil, the endless carnage unleashed by organized crime in Mexico, the long list of prosecuted former Latin American presidents -either fugitives from justice or imprisoned for corruption charges. According [...]

Disdain for life

By |2018-10-20T17:47:45+00:00October 20th, 2018|Categories: News|Tags: , , , |

Public health in Latin America is in ruins. The right to live with dignity has turned into a privilege for thousands of citizens who die due to diseases that could be cared for with basic medical care or proper hospital facilities. Another expression of the highest degree of social unfairness in the region that has become, [...]
