Economic, Social and Cultural Rights on the
50th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Fifty years ago the Universal Declaration of Human Rights became the first
international agreement to include economic, social and cultural rights as
equal and inalienable from civil and political rights. The Institute for
Agriculture and Trade Policy invites you to commemorate the 50th
Anniversary of this important document by focussing on the 'new' category
of rights it contains and, in the language of the Declaration, explore how
best to promote the "universal and effective recognition and observance" of
economic, social and cultural rights.

This gathering will bring together human rights and economic justice
activists, members of organized labor, representatives of religious groups,
lawyers, environmentalists and others in a weekend conference, to be held
December 4-6, 1998 at Hunter College, Brookdale campus, in New York City.

How can the human rights framework provide a common language to help us
mobilize more effectively for social and economic justice? Please join us
to debate and strategize.

Further details, including agenda and speakers will be posted on the
Institute's UDHR50 website http://www.iatp.org/iatphr50/ as they become
available. For further information contact Sharon Ladin, phone
(612)870-3453, fax (612) 870-4846, email <sladin@iatp.org> or at the
following address: Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy, 2105 First
Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55404
