Human Rights: Reality and Challenges

As part of the Academy of Women’s rights funded by the Embassy of the Kingdom of Netherlands in Lebanon , LOST organized a seminar entitled: “ the evolution of human rights’ concept worldwide” delivered by Dr. Abbas Chamas at LOST-Baalbeck center on September 16th, 2012.

Dr. Abbas Chamas mentioned that human rights represent a turning point in the dignity of human being and his/ her personal liberties. He insisted on the rights of women worldwide to participate in the decision- making process of their communities at all levels.After a long discussion among the audience, all participants were invited to a cocktail at Baytna restaurant.

LOST organizes such activities on a regular basis at its premises. Such activities aim at raising the awareness of Lebanese citizens especially the Lebanese women on their rights at all levels in an attempt to enhance their sense of citizenship and engage them in the public affairs of their communities.
