Global Human Rights Education Database

Published on HREA.org.

This year’s Human Rights Day will mark the end of the United Nations Decade for Human Rights Education (1995-2004). As a recognition of all the excellent work that has been done during the Decade, HREA will launch the Global Human Rights Education Database.
This database includes:

  • a Directory of Organisations involved in human rights education;
  • a comprehensive listing of Human Rights Courses and Programmes offered worldwide;
  • an extensive Annotated Bibliography of human rights education materials that have been produced during the UN Decade for Human Rights Education;
  • a Global Directory of Human Rights Educators.

Most of the data contained in the Global Human Rights Education Database has been collected with your help over the past ten years through our Electronic Resource Centre (since 1998), contributions to the Global Human Rights Education listserv (since 1999), and as part of various editions of HREA’s Human Rights Education Resourcebook (first edition in 1997, second in 2000, third in 2003). The Global Directory of Human Rights Educators provides an additional resource for individuals, communities and organisations that are looking for assistance with their activities or want to exchange information. Through the directory one can identify trainers or curriculum developers, explore potential partnerships, etc.

We hope the Global Human Rights Education Database will become a valuable tool for those working in HRE. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have specific questions (technical or otherwise) about the Database; you can do so by e-mail.
