You will have a chance to see photographs from places that are normally accessible only to military professionals and which show the current state of the Czech army, precious moments of rest as well as tense moments in the front line. The photographs were taken by soldiers themselves and professional photojournalists. The exhibition is a testimony of the lives of Czech soldiers in the most recent missions abroad - in Kosovo, Afghanistan, Mali and Iraq. More info on CU Facebook.

Lecture by Aryeh Neier “Can the Global Trend Against Human Rights be Reversed?”
on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
In recent years, authoritarian and xenophobic nationalist leaders have to come to power, or have consolidated power, in a significant number of countries in different parts of the world. In some other countries, political movements embodying such views, have made significant gains. The cause of international human rights, which had secured advances in the 1980s and the 1990s, has suffered major setbacks. Is it possible for those committed to the protection and promotion of human rights to regain the initiative? If so, how can it be done?
When: 3.12.2018 16:30 - 18:00
Where: Faculty of Arts, nám. Jana Palacha 2, Praha 1
