Human Rights Education Materials

Human rights can only be achieved through an informed and continued demand by people for their protection. Human rights education promotes values, beliefs and attitudes that encourage all individuals to uphold their own rights and those of others. It develops an understanding of everyone’s common responsibility to make human rights a reality in each community.

The Resource Center has established a team of experts and highly experienced educators to facilitate human rights workshops. Each training is custom-made for the particular community and context, and typically Resource Center educators work in partnerships with trainers from sponsoring organizations. Special emphasis is given to the “action” component of training, offering participants meaningful, appropriate, and effective ways to respond to the issues involved.
