The World Federation of Intercultural Journalists (WOFIJ) is concern to remark the World Human Rights Day as is observed by the international community every year on 10 December. It commemorates the day in 1948 by the United Nations General Assembly and it was adopted it as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Obviously, each year, the Human Rights Day has a different theme. Last year, the focus was on young people and how you’re never too young to make a difference to the world. In 2021, Human Rights Day is focusing on how rights are the beginning of peace within societies, and a way to create a fairer society for future generations.
As result of that, WOFIJ is a forum for dialogue and intercultural exchanges, strives to restore dignity to those who have been left behind and who have left everything behind and by to facilitate national reconciliation and bring together fragmented societies and to prevent violence in post-conflict contexts and against excluded communities.
Intercultural Journalism Lab in brief
The Intercultural Journalism Lab is a laboratory of journalism by mediated role with interventions, which highlights the social role of mediation in processes of memory and reconciliation, and, hence, in promoting human rights, dignity and access to information freedom.
This initiative has global scope, involving the sensitization of UN instances on the transformative power of the Intercultural mediation among those who have left everything behind and those who have been left behind.
To achieve the result WOFIJ is going to contact the whole world human rights defenders just to obtain the 2021 yearly report before December 10, 2021.
