The Human Rights Day is observed every year on 10 December — the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted in 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). 2020 Human Rights Day theme “Recover Better - Stand Up for Human Rights” relates to the COVID-19 pandemic and focuses on the need to build back better by ensuring Human Rights are central to recovery efforts.
In line with this, DEUSTO Pedro Arrupe Human Rights Institute organised between November and December a round of documentaries seeking to give visibility to the human rights implications of policies (mainly European policies) that regulate human mobility. The documentary cycle aims to reflect on diverse moments of human mobility (displacement, borders, life in the host society), which show both rights violations and forms of struggle and resistance to get the equality “in dignity and rights” as stated in article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
At the end of the screening, a debate moderated by Pedro Arrupe Human Rights Institute researchers, was set to interact with the people involved in its production (directors, producers, protagonists).
