for Human Rights

Together with the “Plenum for Preparation of the Linz Peace and Human Rights’ Day 1990” the Wissenschaftsladen Uni Linz presented a study of “Human Rights in Linz.” The significant objective of the study is to put scientific material and a compilation of human rights material in their cultural, legal, and social meaning in a local context. The presentations results connected seemingly unrelated fields through the broad goal of a democratic-pluralistic society. The historical and cultural roots of facts were presented, in addition to analyses of specific local human rights’ occurrences. Ultimately these presentations proved the practical worth of human rights.
