The Panel Discussion was organized by the Law Faculty of the South East European University.
The Panel Discussion was declared opened by the Pro-rector for International Cooperation and Research, Prof. Dr. Besa Arifi, who said that this day is not coincidentally marked at the South East European University, because the establishment of this University itself is related to one of the points of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which is the right for education in the mother tongue.
On the key topic, spoke Prof. Vigjilenca Abazi, who said that human rights are related with other living conditions in a society. Without strong institutions and the rule of law, we cannot say that the human rights are fully respected. It is something else the signing of a statement and something else its implementation in practice.
