The UNESCO Courier. Humanism: a new idea

14 October 2011

Climate change, ethical issues raised by the boom in biomedical and digital technologies, and the ongoing economic and political crises are all threats hanging over the future of mankind.

Mireille Delmas-Marty, Mahmoud Hussein and Sanjay Seth are just a few of the specialists who provide an informed insight into various aspects of the humanist project which, for the first time, has acquired a universal dimension. Alongside the main feature, Antonio Skármeta shares his ideas on the future of the book. Our guest, Forest Whitaker, talks about his commitment to the cause of child soldiers.
