Recent events including the abuse of power, violence and attacks on essential values in Europe and beyond show that nothing, not even our most fundamental rights, must be taken for granted. Fundamental human rights that were developed as universal and indivisible protection mechanisms are being challenged by political ideologies and actions.

​Do we have to give up certain rights to keep others? Are there rights only for some, ​​​but​ not for all?

​Take your camera and express what rights mean to you and where they might be under threat. Illustrate what Europe means in terms of protecting and living rights that in many parts of the world are only a dream.
