The University of Calgary will ring in International Human Rights Day with a panel discussion starting at noon today.

The event is slated to take place in Room 2370 at Murray Fraser Hall. This year’s theme is “Should criticism of religion be illegal?” Weighing in on the topic will be representatives from the Sheldon Chumir Foundation for Ethics in Leadership, the Alberta Civil Liberties Research Centre and the Centre for Faith and the Media.

The official International Human Rights Days is observed annually Dec. 10 to mark the anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The discussion is free to attend and refreshments will be provided.
