The VII Summer School on Human Rights “Human Rights Protection – Basis for Achieving Sustainable Development Goals in the 21st Century” was held in Perm from 24 to 28 June 2019. It was organized by the Perm State National Research University (PSNRU) in cooperation with the Office of the Ombudsman and the authorities of the Perm Region.
The Summer School is a compulsory event within the framework of the inter-university Master's Program “International Protection of Human Rights”, implemented by the Consortium of Russian Universities with the support of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and the Ministry of the Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.
The VII Summer School was dedicated to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the role of human rights in their implementation. The SDGs are the result of the largest and most participatory consultative process in the history of the United Nations. Based on international human rights law, the SDGs, as an agenda for “people, planet, prosperity, peace and cooperation”, contribute significantly to the enjoyment of human rights around the world without discrimination.
