Eleanor Roosevelt and Human Rights

This season’s first philosophy tea discusses Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962) and the role she played in creating the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In chairing the committee that drafted the Declaration, Roosevelt drew upon her long involvement in human rights and social justice issues. We also discuss the impact of the Declaration on later statements, legal conventions as well as for national and international politics.
