101 good practices in Human Rights Education


Together Against Poverty; Confronting Injustice; Children’s Rights and lives; Diversity Toolkit; Young people’s Civic Action; Junior Voting; School Mediation; Co-operative learning in multicultural groups… these are just a few of the 101 good practices in Human Rights Education from Europe, North America and Central Asia compiled by UNESCO and key human rights institutions and published in a new compendium.

Designed for primary and secondary schools as well as teacher training institutions, the resources included in the compendium touch upon the key elements for successful human rights education: laws, guidelines and standards; the learning environment; teaching and learning tools; professional development for educators and evaluation.

UNESCO collaborated with the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and the Council of Europe to produce the resource.
