Universal Declaration of Human Rights

During her presentation, Alicia Bárcena stressed that Latin America and the Caribbean are facing a crossroads of civilization and an exceptional moment to rethink and address the future by strengthening the role of the State, the market and society.

He specified that legitimacy and trust in the States is today being tested and affirmed that, given the disconnection between society and the State, it is necessary to move towards broad social pacts in the main policy sectors, as a way to achieve welfare states and sustainable models of production and consumption in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

“We are facing an unprecedented crisis that requires transforming the development model in Latin America and the Caribbean, and promoting universal, redistributive and solidarity-based social policies,” she said.

Alicia Bárcena stressed the need for an international pact, a multilateral response much greater than the current one, which extends to middle-income countries that face structural limitations and are not considered in the multilateral mechanisms of assistance or concessional cooperation.

ISSN 2594-1100.El debate en torno al universalismo de los derechos humanos se encierra en un verdadero dilema: unificar en la diversidad o diversificar descuidando la unidad. El problema se centra en esto: si se destaca la unidad que va más allá de la diversidad, o se subraya esta diversidad para descuidar la unidad. Todos los seres humanos son iguales, no hay demasiadas naturalezas humanas, ni siquiera hay dos, sólo hay una, que se coloca en forma corporal entre los diferentes seres humanos. Con este último argumento, afirmamos que aunque seamos diferentes, somos al mismo tiempo iguales; por lo tanto, afirmamos que los derechos humanos son universales. Reconocer las diferencias es tratar a los demás como seres iguales.
