  1. Human rights and memory is a shared concern and a topic both of historical interest as well as of importance for the challenges we are faced with in the future. As a professor of social work I am faced with questions of collective experiences and memories of injustice, violence and exclusion as well as collective ignorance, neglect and aversion. The question of human rights is important to all of us and closely related to the very core-values of law and ethics.
