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
Adults: What Twenty-six Evaluation Studies Say About Design, Implementation
and Follow-Up" examines trainings for human rights defenders, police
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.
