“Human Rights Education in the School Systems of Europe, Central Asia and North America: A Compendium of Good Practice
This is a compilation of 101 examples of good practice in human rights education in primary and secondary schools, as well as teacher training institutions in order to prepare youth to be active, responsible and caring participants at the local, national and international level.
Human rights education has been defined as education, training and information aimed at building a universal culture of human rights. Education for democratic citizenship focuses on educational practices and activities designed to help young people and adults to play an active part in democratic life and exercise their rights and responsibilities in society. Education for mutual respect and understanding highlights self-respect, respect for others, and the improvement of relationships between people of differing cultural traditions.
This book aims to support quality teaching in these areas and to inspire educational policymakers and administrators, teachers, trainers, non-formal educators and all other who are interested, as well as to facilitate networking and the exchange of experience among education professionals.
