“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times”, Dickens’ words also apply to our contemporary age. We live in unprecedented prosperity while we witness mass suffering of humans in various parts of the world.

We’ll talk about human rights and their different application and interpretation, especially in the context of the Western world vs. Russia and China. We’ll also explore the clash between the empowerment of the individual and the “dictatorship” of community.

On this most fundamental subject we’ll ask ourselves: on what do we base human rights and how to protect them from populist and authoritarian tendencies among ruling elites?

We’ll get together in front of our screens and with coffee or other beverage in hand talk to other human beings that are as passionate as ourselves about finding answers.

Some subjects we’ll touch on:

•Human rights – unnecessary or fundamental?
•Latin America – laws and rights not being applied?
•Government, NGOs and civil society
•The individual or community – who should take precedence?
•Alternatives to the liberal vision: China, Russia, and the others
•And so much more!

Upon finishing the get-together, we will have questioned the importance of human rights, their implementation in Latin America and the world, and analyzed the clash between the individual and community.
