The conference provided the platform for activists, experts, academics and world leaders involved in the field of Human Rights to come together, create alliances, and better coordinate their activities, thus helped to promote better implementation and enforcement of Human Rights in a more effective nature.
The conference engaged Cultural Diplomacy as a means of uniting the varying sectors of society in order to create a joint collaboration for the protection and support of Human Rights activities, as well as recognised the capabilities of Cultural Diplomacy in enabling governments to fulfill Human Rights obligations towards their citizens.
