背景:
《世界人權宣言》自1948年成立至今已越70年。《宣言》是世界公認的人權標準,也是多條保障人權的國際公約的基礎。然而,《宣言》上的30條權利,在世界各地至今尚有不少未落實之處。近年國際社會和政治環境的民粹轉向,也令人權在香港的實施備受挑戰。在香港,近年有關人權的討論和社會運動傾向則重公民權利和政治權利,經濟、社會和文化權利(特別是弱勢群體如移工、少數族裔、婦女、性小眾的權利)的討論一直處於邊緣地位。有見及此,本中心希望藉着是次工作坊,邀請各界從性別角度回顧《宣言》在本港落實情況,以增進社會對性別議題的關注。

Background:
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) have been established for 70 years since 1948. The UDHR outlines the universal standard of human rights and serves as the basis for all international conventions for human rights protection. However, up until now, 30 articles in the Declaration have not been fully adopted in many countries in the world. The rise of populism in the global political climate further poses challenges on the implementation of human rights in both global and local context.
In Hong Kong, the recent discussions on human rights and social movements tend to focus on civil and political rights. Economic, social and cultural rights are still not widely attended, especially the rights of the marginalized communities, including migrants, ethnic minorities, women and sexual minorities. With regards to the 70th anniversary of UDHR, we would like to take this opportunity to examine the achievements and challenges of women’s rights and gender equality in Hong Kong and discuss how to bring the agenda to the next stage.
