The intention of this Educator's Guide
is to make prominent writings of field journalists on war crimes accessible
to youth, young adults, and future decision makers, as well as to inform
the general public.
The first issue of HREA's Research in Human
Rights Education Papers Series has appeared. The paper is a comparative
study on models of human rights training. "Human Rights Training for

officers, government officials and the general public. Among its main recommendations
This manual aims to:
- Engage educators currently utilizing service-learning in the practice of human rights education;
- Enable human rights educators and trainers to teach through service-learning; and
- Provide the tools and building blocks for educators to promote human rights education and service-learning far beyond the scope of the activities included in this manual.

Gender responsive budgeting is a tool to ensure that gender equality commitments are reflected and realised in public budgets. Since the 1990s, gender budgeting is increasingly used in developed and developing countries by different actors (ministries of finance, line ministries, NGOs, gender advocates and universities) to asses impact of government expenditures on citizens, women and men, and to transform budget programmes to target priority needs and close gender gaps.
In this e-learning course human rights, humanitarian and development workers will be introduced to the fundamentals of qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis, including survey design, interviewing and associated techniques for analysis in support of project-based monitoring and evaluation. This course will be helpful for those with modest experience in monitoring and evaluation. Participants are encouraged to come to the course with an instrument and/or associated protocols for analysis that can be developed.
This e-learning course will introduce the basic elements of project development and management. Step-by-step processes and techniques will be introduced for the various phases of a project life cycle. The course is intended for staff of non-governmental organisations who have responsibility for designing and carrying out a project, but with relatively little experience. Participants will be assisted in the development of project planning documents.
This e-learning course is an introduction to documenting and monitoring women's human rights and gender equality, including sexual and gender based violence, women in situations of armed conflict, education, political rights and freedoms, and special protection measures. It will critically look at the gendered dimension to women's human rights violations and the challenges in implementing and monitoring these rights in an analytical framework.
This certificate course introduces participants to the basics of international human rights law. The course is intended to not only build the foundations of the participants in international human rights law, but also as a foundation course for other HREA e-learning courses and to serve as a stepping stone for developing expertise in specialised areas of human rights law and practice.
