The 11th annual Youth for Human Rights International Human Rights Summit 2014 to be held in Brussels from September 5th to the 7th, will follow our proud tradition of bringing youth from around the world together to share, encourage and inspire global peace and tolerance.

The mission of YHRI is educational and apolitical, focusing on teaching universal human rights as set out in the United Nations UDHR. Our accomplishments of the previous year and our goals for the following year will be covered at the Summit.
