International conference on Libraries from a Human Rights Perspective
Ramallah – Palestine
31 March – 2 April 2008
This conference –organized by RCHRS in cooperation with IFLA- will highlight the importance of achieving human rights related to library work and these rights include: freedom of expression, freedom of access to information, tolerance, acceptance of the other, respect of diversity and cultural rights. When examining these rights, it looks very obvious that all of them are direct to library missions and without raising awareness of these rights inside libraries, the latter will not be able to provide services that respect human development needs.
