Short Summary:

What is the link between International Voluntary Service and Human Rights Education? In 2008 the world commemorated the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It was a moment to reaffirm the universal relevance of the set of fundamental principles elaborated under the influence of the horrors of World War II. CCIVS also celebrated its 60 years in the same year. CCIVS was born out of the efforts of the International Community to better organize civil society in order to reach “the minds of men” at all levels.
