On 10 December 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations.
Even today, it still serves as a moral and legal standard for the world. S-wan guides you through cosmopolitan Bruges, making use along the way of actual themes to illustrate the long and often difficult process to have these fundamental rights universally accepted and respected. Be prepared for a fascinating journey through time, which will explore, among other things, Christian charity, draughty medieval prisons, their gruesome torture practices and ‘rigorous’ Church discipline. In a medieval city there are always contentious topics to discuss: from ethical entrepreneurship to homophobia.
