What is actually behind the term “human rights”? Are human rights binding? What is the point of human rights in view of all the human rights violations around the world? How does digitalization affect our human rights? Do children have rights? If so, which ones? This weekend is all about the topic of human rights. Here you and your family will find out what the situation is like for people worldwide and in Austria, and what can be done about it.

Deep Space Live: An insight into human rights with Heinz PatzeltĀ 

Human rights begin in our own environment, in everyday things. Thanks to them, we can freely express our opinions, participate in elections, receive adequate health care, and are protected from arbitrary state interference in our private lives. However, human rights are under pressure around the world. More and more governments are restricting our freedoms piece by piece. There are challenges in Austria as well.
