Human Rights


As we approach the 70th anniversary of the ratification of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, what are the main areas of progress we have seen? Which emerging technologies could be a game changer for human rights protection and enforcement in the future and how? Which ones are posing new challenges to human rights and how can we address those early on?

In this week’s episode of “A Glimpse into the Future”, we talk to the co-chairs of the World Economic Forum’s Council on the Future of Human Rights: Erica Kochi, co-founder of UNICEF Innovation, and Mike Posner, Jerome Kohlberg Professor of Ethics and Finance of the Stern School of Business at New York University and Director of their Center for Business and Human Rights.
